The problem is that when the filenames on the website have a space in them, wget gives me a 400 bad request error. How can i fix this?
PS. I also want to have it download the files in the txt file from random lines instead of going in order...but not knowing beforehand how long the file will be, how can i do that? The file has one filename per line, all the files being in the same directory on the webserver.
ok, i installed the gnu-utils program from the mydsl extension loader, and that solved my problem. They probably just put in a trimmed down version of the program to save space. DSL Linux is very small after all.
