I would need a ruby “wget version” which works on linux and windows.
I would like to feed it an URL to a .tar.bz2 or .zip or .tar.gz file and
have it download. That’s what it basically should do.
Right now I use
system 'wget '+the_url
which does not work on windows easily (but will work on pretty much all
the linuxes out there)
I once wrote a minimal ruby wget wrapper but it has some problems as the
code is years old and messy so I was wondering if anyone is using
some ruby-wget thing?
