Curl is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax, supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, GOPHER, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. 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
