SYNOPSIS

phttpget server file ...

DESCRIPTION

The phttpget utility is a minimalist pipelined HTTP client, which is used to retrieve multiple file s from one server, and saves the downloaded files in the current working directory, using the last portion of their download path as file names.

By making several "in flight" HTTP requests, it can dramatically increase performance when a large number of small files need to be downloaded.

The freebsd-update(8) and portnap(8) tools use phttpget to download binary patch files.

ENVIRONMENT

HTTP_PROXY URL of the proxy to use for HTTP requests.
HTTP_PROXY_AUTH
  Authorization parameters for the HTTP proxy.
HTTP_USER_AGENT
  The User-Agent string to use for HTTP requests. The default is "phttpget/0.1".
HTTP_TIMEOUT Timeout for HTTP request in seconds.
