Ever tried to download a large file on a spotty wifi connection, only to see your browser stop half way?
Old skool* unix tool
wget to the rescue!
wget -c http://example.com/file.zip -clip- HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 206 Partial Content Length: 202038832 (193M), 68878307 (66M) remaining [application/zip] Saving to: ‘file.zip’ 77% [++++++++++++++++++++++===============> ]
Just make sure you're in the directory where your partial file download already exists, and pass the
-c flag which means "continue."
*OK, so apparently it's not that old.
