aget - A multithreaded HTTP download accelerator
This manual page documents briefly the aget commands. This manual page
was originally written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
aget fetches HTTP URLs in a manner similar to wget, but
segments the retrieval into multiple parts to increase download speed. It
can be many times as fast as wget in some circumstances.
It is the starting point for a project attempting to replicate the
functionality of a MS Windows program called Flashget.
The following exit values are returned:
- port number
- local file name
- Show summary of options.
- Show version of program.
- Suggested number of threads
- force using suggested number of threads
Application exited with failure.
POSIX pthreads creation error occurred.
Example 1: Say you want to download a URL using 10 threads,
example% aget -n 10 http://www.enderunix.org/murat/barismanco-hibrahimsofrasi.mp3
