GNU wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP,
HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols. It is a
non-interactive command-line tool, so it may easily be called from
scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc.
GNU wget has many features to make retrieving large files or mirroring
entire web or FTP sites easy, including:
o Can resume aborted downloads, using REST and RANGE
o Can use filename wild cards and recursively mirror directories
o NLS-based message files for many different languages
o Optionally converts absolute links in downloaded documents to
relative, so that downloaded documents may link to each other locally
o Supports HTTP and SOCKS proxies
o Supports HTTP cookies
o Supports persistent HTTP connections
o Unattended / background operation
o Uses local file timestamps to determine whether documents need to
be re-downloaded when mirroring
o GNU wget is distributed under the GNU General Public License.
