17.4.2 How to Download from Internet with "wget" Command
We occasionally download and install programs directly from the Internet. In this case, you can also download the program directly from the web browser, but you can download the necessary program by specifying the URL directly in the Shell Terminal of Raspberry Pi. The command to use in this case is the "wget" command.
wget [option] [URL]
■ This downloads the necessary data from the Internet.
■ User privilege -- Normal user.
■ The download program package is stored in the current working directory unless specified otherwise.
Go to background immediately after startup. If no output file is specified via the -o, output is redirected to wget-log.
Turn off Wget's output.
Set number of tries to number. Specify 0 or inf for infinite retrying. The default is to retry 20 times, with the exception of fatal errors like "connection refused" or "not found" (404), which are not retried.
Force wget to display the progress bar in any verbosity.
Set the network timeout to seconds seconds. This is equivalent to specifying --dns-timeout, --connect-timeout, and --read-timeout, all at the same time.
Specify the username user and password password for both FTP and HTTP file retrieval. These parameters can be overridden using the --ftp-user and --ftp-password options for FTP connections and the --http-user and --http-password options for HTTP connections.
The following is an example file to download from the Internet:
