Wget is a useful GNU command line utility used to download files from internet. This utility can download the files from servers using popular protocols like HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP. It runs in the background (non-interactive) and hence can be used in scripts and cron jobs. GNU Wget was written by Hrvoje Nik??i?? and currently, it is under Tim R??hsen, Darshit Shah, and Giuseppe Scrivano.
