With Lynx, how do I download a page, image, or program from the web to my account from the Unix command line prompt?
To download from the web using Lynx from the Unix command line prompt, enter:
lynx -source URL > filename
URL with the URL of the page or image that you
want to download. Replace
filename with a filename that
you want to give to what you are downloading. For example, if you are
trying to download a web page at the address
http://empire.gov/dvader.html, and you'd
like to name the page on your account
then you'd enter:
lynx -source http://empire.gov/dvader.html > myhero.html
If you want to download a web page in formatted output (i.e., without HTML tags, but instead as it would appear in Lynx), then enter:
lynx -dump URL > filename
If there are any links on the page, the URLs for those links will be included at the end of the downloaded page.
