### Wget Command in Linux/Unix The Wget command is a powerful command line utility in Linux/Unix systems that is used to download files from the web. It is a non-interactive command line tool, so it may easily be called from scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc. Wget can download files using HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols. It supports HTTP cookies, redirects, and can even be used to mirror entire web sites. It is a very versatile and efficient tool that can be used to download and manage large files. ### Syntax The syntax for the Wget command is as follows: `wget [option] [URL]` ### Options The following options can be used with the Wget command: - `-V`: Displays the Wget version number - `-h`: Display help information - `-b`: Background mode - `-O`: Specify the local output file name - `-t`: Set number of retries - `-c`: Continue getting a partially-downloaded file ### Example To download a file using the Wget command, you can use the following command: `wget -O myfile.txt http://example.com/myfile.txt`
