General :: Wget A File With Correct Name When Redirected?

Jun 23, 2011

I was unable to find an answer to something that (I think) should be simple:

If you go here: [URL]

like so:

wget [URL]

you'll probably end up with a file called "download_script.php?src_id=9750"

But I want it to be called "molokai.vim", which is what would happen if I used a browser to download this file.

Question: what options do I need to specify for wget for the desired effect?

I'd also be ok with a curl command.

Programming :: Perl Script Output Can't Be Redirected To A File / Sort It?

Feb 18, 2010

The perl script I wrote works fine if I print the result to screen 1 1000 0 5

But whenever I want to output to a file with 1 1000 0 5 > x0_out

it never really prints out to the file.

It worked earlier, but I was playing with my PATH lately, I don't know if it's related to that

General :: Wget File And Getting Error 404 File Not Found?

Mar 2, 2011

when i wget it displays
--2011-03-02 16:35:58-- url...
Connecting to||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 177 [text/html]
Saving to: 'index.html'
2011-03-02 16:35:58 (12.4 MB/s) - 'index.html' saved [177/177]

However, when I look into the file it is actually blank saying something like "It works! This is the default web page for this server" which can't be correct since that is not what actually displays.

Furthermore, when I try to wget files I've put on the server for myself it returns a 404, file not found.

General :: Downloading A RAR File From Mediafire Using WGET

Jul 19, 2011

Example: [url]

This was what I tried...wget -A rar [-r [-l 1]] <mediafireurl>

That is to say, I tried with and without the recursive option. It ends up downloading an HTML page of a few KB in size, while what I want is in the range 90-100 MB and RAR.

What happens with MediaFire for those who may not be aware, is that it first says

Processing Download Request...

This text after a second or so turns into the download link and reads

Click here to start download..

How to write a proper script for this situation.

General :: Download A Single File In 2 Parts To Different Locations Using Wget?

Jan 18, 2011

I need to use wget (or curl or aget etc) to download a file to two different download destinations by downloading it in two halves:

First: 0 to 490000 bytes of file
Second: 490001 to 1000000 bytes of file.

I will be downloading this to separate download destinations and will merge them back to speed up the download. The file is really large and my ISP is really slow, so I need to get help from friends to download this in parts (actually in multiple parts)

The question below is similar but not the same as my need: How to download parts of same file from different sources with curl/wget?


aget seems to download in parts but I have no way of controlling precisely which part (either in percentage or in bytes) that I wish to download.

Extra Info

Just to be clear I do not wish to download from multiple locations, I want to download to multiple locations. I also do not want to download multiple files (it is just a single file). I want to download parts of the same file, and I want to specify the parts that I need to download.

General :: How To Echo Redirected Stdin

Sep 26, 2010

I execute an application from a script file and redirect stdin to it from here-doc like this:

my_cli << HERE_DOC

This works as expected, but I don't see neither the input nor the app output. The application is an interactive prompt written in C. When I interact manually with it, I see the prompt itself and responses to my input, but when I execute the aforementioned script I see nothing. I would like it to print the input and the output as if a real user was typing. Do you know how to achieve that?

General :: Rpm Doesn't Work When Used With URL That's Redirected?

Jun 4, 2011

If I do the following, if the URL is a redirect, it doesn't work

rpm -ivh http://path/to/rpm

I have to use wget http://path/to/rpm which resolves the redirect and downloads the file, then run rpm on that file.

More for my knowledge of bash than anything else, would there be a way to redirect the file downloaded from wget into the rpm (something like redirection or pipes or something), so that they could be combined into one command and you wouldn't explicitly save the file first.

Something like... rpm -ivh << wget http://path/to/rpm

I have one more question, and that is whether there is a command in linux, such as wget, that would let me pass it a URL and output the redirected-to URL if the argument.

e.g. ('wget --someflag http://orig/url' would output 'http://url-after-redirects-followed')

Software :: Resume An Interrupted Wget Using Wget.log?

Jun 19, 2011

If a wget download is interrupted (like if I have to shutdown prematurely), I get a wget.log with the partial download. How can I later resume the download using the data in wget.log? I have searched high and low (including wget manual) and cannot find how to do this. Is it so obvious that I did not see it? The wget -c option with the wget.log as the argument to the -c option does not work. What I do do is open the wget.log and copy the URL and then paste it into the command line and do another wget. This works but the download is started from the beginning, which means nothing in the wget.log is used.

OpenSUSE :: The No Such File Or Directory Warning Is Correct?

May 12, 2011

When I learn shell script, I want to add my own PATH variable to system previous variables. I find that my linux has the below PATH variables (in the end of this message). It shows 'No such file or directory' although I verify that all the directories exist. Some directories are empty indeed. This will result that warning?

I want to make the present PATH variables correct before I add mine.

bash: /usr/lib/mpi/gcc/openmpi/bin:/home/jeff/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin: No such file or directory

Fedora :: Can't Login To F14 / Display Goes Black And Redirected Back To The Log In Screen?

Nov 3, 2010

So, I just installed Fedora yesterday. I have been trying out different Linux distros and Fedora was next after Ubuntu and SuSE failed severely. So, I installed F14 yesterday and everything has been great... until I tried to set my JAVA_HOME variable. I followed the instructions here.

After editing $ vi ~/.bash_profile as the site instructs, I proceeded to log-out and log back in...except I can't log back in. I have repeatedly gotten the login screen, selected my account, and entered my password. When I enter my password incorrectly, it says 'Validation Error' and that is not what is occurring. The display goes black for a couple of seconds and I am redirected back to the log in screen.

Ubuntu :: Bash - Check If All The File Names Are Correct?

Sep 23, 2010

I have bash script for converting files. I have a problem. If file name is "corrupted" then mv command for that file will not work. For example file with "-" in front of the name.

Is there a way to check if in some folder (subfolder) all the files have correct file names or they don't?

If they are all correct -> OK proceed with execution of the script!

If they are not all correct -> NOT OK stop with execution of the script!
