PUF: A Wget-like Url Fetcher

PUF stands for parallel url fetcher is a beautyful download tool for UNIX-like systems. It is similar to GNU wget, but with puf you have the ability to download many files in parallel.

To install it on Debian-based linux (like Ubuntu) simply type to the command line:

$ sudo apt-get install puf

The usage is very simple. For example, to download many files in parallel, you should type:

$ puf file1 file2 file3

and so on… More info: http://sourceforge.net/projects/puf/ or simply by typing from the terminal:

$ man puf
