Download all files from a web page


I would like to be able to use wget and get all files at this page:

Of course, I could do them one by one, but that would ruin the fun.

So I tried doing

So, is there a way to do this elegantly?

wget has options for this, you should use: wget --recursive --level=1 --no-parent <url>

man wget
