Question downloading from the command line

A newbie question I know...

a while ago I saw a tutorial that showed you how to download to a directory from the command line in one go.

]#<download command> ftp://a host/dir

Can anyone brush off the cobwebs of my brain?

Linux have many utils for download files from net.

for example:

wget ftp://server/path/file.rpm

fetch ftp://server/path/file.rpm

or console browser program

links ftp://server/path/file.rpm
lynx ftp://server/path/file.rpm
