Download via HTTP and command line?


How can I download a file from the web using HTTP and the command line? I am using SSH to get to my Ubuntu box and would like to pull down the following file...

http://www.webalice.it/albertomilone...509-1_i386.deb

I cannot seem to find it via Google, so I'm punting. Any ideas?

Yep. 'wget'. In its simplest form, it's simply 'wget URL'.

Got it! Refined my search on Google and found a command cheat sheet...

The command I used was...

wget http://www.webalice.it/albertomilone...509-1_i386.deb
