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. Open source & freeware.

Platform: Windows/Linux/True64/Solaris/IRIX/HP-UX ...

Mission completed:

I had to download a report from an intranet (helpdesk) page once a day.

Direct access to the assigned DB wasn't possible.

With curl we "greped" the page content using the commandline (regardless that I had to to login with user/pw). :whistle:

Curl - the Webpage
