General :: Curl -K Command Outputs Weird Symbols Instead Of Downloading URL From File?

May 16, 2011

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04. I have read around about how to use curl to download a list of URLs from a text file, and everyone says to use Code:curl -K URLlist.txt. This is what the curl man page says as well. However, for even a simple file with one URL, this command outputs a bunch of weird symbols for me instead of downloading the file.For example, I have a text file "test.txt" with one line in the following format:

url = ""
I use the curl command to download this file:

General :: Curl - Download A File From A Website In Command Line?

Aug 9, 2011

I need to download a file from a website which has a URL formatted like:


This redirects to a .zip file which has to be saved. There is also a need to authenticate based on username and password.

I tried to use wget, curl and lynx with no luck.


wget doesnt work with redirection. It simply downloads the webpage instead of the zip file. curl gives the error "Maximum redirection exceeded > 50 " lynx also gives the same error.

General :: Curl - Curl API To Configure Only The Required Protocol?

Jun 24, 2010

Is there any curl API to configure only the required protocol. If I have proper openssl installed, the installed curl will have all the protocols (like HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, File etc...) supported by default. Is there any way to allow or disallow only some of the protocol at the runtime. Say I need to support only HTTPS, FILE and I dont want to allow HTTP. Is there any way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Command For Inserting Symbols? OR Custom Keyboard Layout

Feb 24, 2010

Is there a way to set up a custom keyboard layout? (ex: set q to the f key, etc.) I have looked around, but have been unable to find one.

If there isn't one, then a (basically) equivalent solution for me would be to map some of the symbols I need (ex: Δx,Σ,ect.) to ctrl-/,ctrl-., ect. through keyboard shortcuts. The problem I run into here is that I do not know of any commands that paste a specific symbol into the focused text input area. Does anyone know of one?

General :: Downloading All Links In An XML File?

May 26, 2011

I am, as the forum title suggests, new to linux and to programming and having trouble figuring out how to do this.I have a very large XML file with a lot of information in it. I'm trying to get a single tag out of the file, each of these tags contains a single web link and I want to download the file at every single one of those links. I really don't know how to do this.My thought, though its probably not the most efficient or correct way, was to use VIM to search the document and somehow extract all of this one particular tag and then use wget on the links.

Software :: CURL Post Data Command From Shell - HTTP Error Code 408

Jan 29, 2011

I am trying to connect to the web interface found at [URL] using curl. This first requires login information to be entered at [URL], but I am having an issue with the login process. I am trying to submit the following form via POST:

<form action="j_security_check" method="post" id="login_form" name="login_form">
<center> <table style="background: #cac1cf;FONT-SIZE: 12px;">
<tr> <td align="center" colspan="2">Please enter your username and password:</td>
</tr> <tr> <td align="right">Username</td>
<td> <input name="j_username" style="width: 250px" id="j_username" type="text"/> </td>
</tr> <tr>
<td align="right">Password</td>
<td> <input style="width: 250px" name="j_password" id="j_password" type="password"/> </td>
</tr> <tr> <td colspan="2" align="center">
<input value="Enter" name="enter" type="submit"/>
<input value="Clear" name="Clear" type="reset"/>
</td> </tr> </table> </center> </form>
The command that I am using for this is the following:

curl -c cookies -b cookies -L -d "" [URL]
The command is properly formatted as far as I can tell. I tested it with another website using a similar authentication scheme using different POST variables specific to the form and it worked fine.

When I run the above command with the -v tag, it reveals this:
* Connected to ( port 80 (#0)
> POST /sso/j_security_check HTTP/1.1
> User-Agent: curl/7.21.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.21.0 OpenSSL/0.9.8o zlib/ libidn/1.18

> Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
} [data not shown]
< HTTP/1.1 408 The time allowed for the login process has been exceeded. If you wish to continue you must either click back twice and re-click the link you requested or close and re-open your browser

103 1554 100 1554 0 52 5081 170 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 10223*
Closing connection #0

I cannot tell why the login timeout is expired when I try to do this, and my investigation toward this end has been fruitless. I saw a brief snippet on Google that vaguely suggested that the underscores in the domain name were at fault, but replacing these with their encoded counterparts did nothing to resolve the issue (that, and underscores should be fine when sent unencoded according to the standards). I have extensively perused the man pages and have come up with nothing to adequately explain this behavior. I also talked to a friend who has worked with curl in his line of work, but he mostly has experience in the context of PHP and has not dealt with this issue before. I am running GNU/Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae.

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 :: Configure RTorrent To Stop Downloading After Certain File Size

Aug 26, 2010

I am looking for a way to configure rTorrent to stop downloading all torrents after they have downloaded x amount. For example, specify 15mb and as soon as the torrent reaches that size have it finish downloading the pieces it has requested and then start seeding partially completed. The reason for this is I'm trying to come up with a way to build ratio on a site where torrents are added very fast and at a very high frequency.

I download and add the torrents to rTorrent automatically via RSS, but I only want to download a small amount and seed that small piece while there are still a lot of people in the swarm (swarm drops off very quickly) and come out with a positive ratio from that small piece, beating the ratio clock so to speak. I thought it would be an interesting all be it somewhat impractical exercise in shell scripting, if rTorrent can be hooked into like that, documentation is sparse in some areas.

Ubuntu :: PDF File Shows Math Symbols But Printer Does Not?

Jan 31, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and up to date.

I have an HP Laserjet 2200 connected via USB with 64MB of memory. When I print page 2 of this document (for example) [URL] the delta-symbol and minus-signs do not show up, although I see them in Adobe reader version 9.3.

I have tried several of the available drivers for the printer (including the "[recommended]" one) and none of them produce these symbols.

I'm guessing this is a font issue. I don't know how to show you what font stuff I have installed.

Software :: Using SED To Strip Multiple Leading Hash Symbols From A File?

Oct 28, 2010

I have a quirky situation whereby I'm using SED to selectively comment out a line in a crontab job (on Solaris, I know but it's connected to the Linux function I'm working with).

What's happening is this.

Remove hash symbol

/opt/csw/bin/gsed -i '/^.*/usr/local/scripts/*/ s/^#//' $TEMPFILE
Restore hash symbol

/opt/csw/bin/gsed -i '/^.*/usr/local/scripts/*/ s/^/#/' $TEMPFILE

The problem I'm running into is that the script can sometimes prepend an extra hash # symbol if run more than once (I have a lockfile that I poll for to discourage this, but that's not perfect).

I wonder how I can modify that sed statement to remove any/all leading hash marks up to the first other character, in this case it's a 0 (zero) which is a crontab file.
