Mastering Wget

Sunday, August 27, 2006

"Your browser does a good job of fetching web documents and displaying them, but there are times when you need an extra strength download manager to get those tougher HTTP jobs done. A versatile, old school Unix program called Wget is a highly hackable, handy little tool that can take care of all your downloading needs. Whether you want to mirror an entire web site, automatically download music or movies from a set of favorite weblogs, or transfer huge files painlessly on a slow or intermittent network connection, Wget's for you." Read more @ lifehacker.

Note from the Nerd: I personally find wget one of the most useful Linux utilities. Often times I want to download something (like a movie) that doesn't have a direct download option. Wget makes it easy! So for all of you that haven't used wget, its about time that you try it. It will save you a lot of trouble!
