Fig.01: wget example

GNU Wget retrieves content from web servers, and is part of the GNU Project. It currently supports downloading via HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, the most popular TCP/IP-based protocols used for web browsing. Typical usage of GNU Wget consists of invoking it from the command line, providing one or more URLs as arguments:
wget http://www.cyberciti.biz/file.tar.gz
To download the entire contents of www.cyberciti.biz:
$ wget -r -l 0 http://www.cyberciti.biz/

Please see this page for wget examples here.
