    command to download a file from internet

    Hey guys,

    A quick question. Is there a command or a tool to download a file from the interent.
    What i've got is a CGI script which compress a set of files trasfers the to me the client. The problem is the when i try to use the URL i get a pop-up windlow asking me were to save the compressed file.

    But I am trying to automate this process. So i'm looking for something lile

    iexplore <CGI url>. But this will bring the pop-box asking for the target folder were to save.

    But isn't there a switch to tell iexplore to save the file at a particular location?

    Thanks guys!
