Automatic XPI find and download

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Been tooling around with INetGet. Was wondering if there was a way to get all files of a certain type from a URL's folder. for instance, I am trying to auto update my extentions in Firefox silent install folder. So whenever they come out with new ones, I don't have to hunt them down and save them locally. Basically trying to do something like this:

InetGet("http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/down_them_all/*.xpi", "C:\downthemall.xpi")

or even

InetGet("http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/down_them_all/downthemall*.xpi", "C:\downthemall.xpi")

The thing that's tripping me up of course is that INetGet is looking for the exact filename.

Am I just out of luck?

Servers typically don't even let you view the folder contents, but if they do, download the index they give, and parse it to download them all.


or get Anawave Websnake. I try not to suggest non AutoIT stuff here, but i think that may fit your needs... you can have it download a mirror of the site (including directory structure) and then use normal FileFindFirstFile() and FileFindNextFile() functions to delete all except the ones that fit what you need...
