Pages

Curl vs Wget

To get started first we do the following

First check if curl is installed on our Ubuntu, if not, we install is using the following:




-L if server reports that the requested page has moved to a different location. redo the requests on new place.
-# for progress bar
-O Write output to a local file named like the remote file we get. The remote file name to use for saving is stracted from teh given URL.

wget is more like a predecessor of curl.
