GNU OpenVMS Wget

GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS, the most widely used Internet protocols. It is a non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc.

GNU Wget has many features to make retrieving large files or mirroring entire web or FTP sites easy, including:


- Perl 5 any version
- zlib, ported here
- OpenSSL 1.0.x or higher (I use vanilla 3.0.13 now) - libidn2 here

Compilation and installation:

depends on the package compiled
