Openning a link to download

How would I open a link to download a file rather then using wget

This time I can't seem to use wget due to the fact that the link is directed by a PHP script. Therefore wget downloads"download.php?file=whatever" rather then the file it is supposed to be redirected to.

Would there be a way for me to open the link as if it was in a browser to be redirected to the file?

from what i know of wget it wont do what you want just because the php redirect script has a timer in most cases. you could give WebHTTrack a try i believe it will do what you want.
