 All about wget

wget is a great utility. I use it all the time. Mac users should take a look at curl.

"OK, you laggardly louts late to the Linux party, listen up! This week's column is all about power to the people. Command line power. Power that keeps working while you're off lollygagging. We're talking about GNU Wget: the behind-the-scenes, under-the-hood, don't-need-watching, network utility that speaks HTTP, HTTPS and FTP with equal fluency. Wget makes it easy to download a personal copy of a Web site from the Internet to peruse offline at your leisure, or retrieve the complete contents of a distribution directory on a remote FTP site."
