puf(1) http client for parallel downloading


puf [options] url [url ...]


puf is a program similar to GNU wget. The main difference is that puf tries to download as many urls as possible in parallel.

The available options vary between different versions. Simply run `puf -h' to get a list of available options.


Entries in your /etc/hosts file will confuse the alias detection for the listed hosts. Workaround: do not use aliases, but only the primary name on the command line.

When continuing a download, ALL already complete files are scanned for links, as we have no reliable means of detecting the file type.
