Current version is FetchURL version 1.0 951028.
FetchURL is a small robot that can fetch files from cyberspace. FetchURL uses a 16kb write-buffer and was designed to not consume much memory even when it is bringing huge data files. Furthermore, user can always abort [Ctrl-C] the transfer while it is in process.
FetchURL understands the following template:
From/A is the mandatory source object and To/K is the optional destination object.
By default, FetchURL brings the from object from a server to the local computer.
All of the following calls result in same action:
FetchURL From www.xspace.nl/mix/index.html
FetchURL From htt://www.xspace.nl/mix/index.html
As you can see in the above example, if the destination object is a directory, index.html is assumed as the destination target.
By default, the destination object is located in the current directory. If you want to change this, you can use the To/K argument when you call the program.
FetchURL From http://www.xspace.nl/mix/News.LHA To XDH1:News.LHA
Will fetch News.LHA from www.xspace.nl/mix/ and copy it to XDH1:News.LHA
