Authors/Port authors:

GNU Wget is a network utility to retrieve files using HTTP and FTP, with reget options and more. Now with SSL support! Port by different authors.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.
