I have compiled Wget 1.10.2 as a Universal Binary executable, for Mac OS 10.4 "Tiger" or above, and bundled it in a Mac OS X installer package.

Compiling "wget" for Mac OS X is no rocket science. Or do I miss something?

Martin Kautz, 2007-01-27

I don't wget it either :-)

wget has been part of fink forever. I never leave ~/ without it!

Ole Saalmann, 2007-01-27

No, it's not rocket science but obviously in the last couple o'years nobody cared enough to do it - outside Fink and Darwin Ports, that is. Since I don't see any good reason to install either for the small amount of additional utilities I need, I like the fact that it's available as stand alone utility.

What's wrong with curl?

Stefan Tilkov, 2007-01-28

Probably nothing but I've had some issues with curl in the past. I can't remember exactly what it was and most likely they're fixed by now. Still, I prefer wget since.

Stefan Rubner, 2007-01-28

@Stefan Tilkov: curl has no "--mirror" option :-)

Ole Saalmann, 2007-01-28

ooh, I just posted something on using wget to retrieve all the Lotusphere presentations, now it works on the Mac too! Cool.

Thanks, Alan. Your link was somehow broken, so here it is.

Here is a simple workaround using curl:
echo 'alias wget="curl -O"' >> ~/.bash_profile
