========================================================================= Occasionally I need to download a page or file from a web site. Normally, I'd load the page/file in a browser and then save it. But it's a pain to load a browser just to download a file. dHTTP will download a file from a web server using the HTTP 1.1 protocol. You can also download pages that are password protected. Syntax: dhttp \[username:[email protected]\]server\[:port\]\[/file\] Download the default page for a web site: dhttp www.cmdtools.com Download a specified file: dhttp www.cmdtools.com/dhttp.zip Download a password protected file: dhttp username:[email protected] Download a file on a different port: dhttp www.domain.com:8080 You can specify a path and filename using the "o" option: dhttp /oindex.html www.cmdtools.com Any header information returned by the web server is displayed on the screen and the data is written to a file. It should also work well in a network or timed script. This product is freeware. There is no fee for personal use.
