cURL groks URLs

From http://curl.haxx.se/ : Curl is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax, supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, GOPHER, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. Curl supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, kerberos, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication, file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and a busload of other useful tricks.

An equivilent is CPAN:LWP, which offers both command line tools and an API for Perl. It is bundled with Perl 5.005 an above, so should be available anywhere that TWiki is installed.

Thus the Perl command line tools include lwp-download and lwp-rget, both of which are actually scripts.

and, there's the venerable wget, too

I just changed the Build scripts over from Curl to LWP, and IMHO, it's a PITA to drive. For most purposes I would recommend curl; it's much easier to work out what is (or more importantly, what isn't) going on.
