Download Multiple Files

To download a bunch of files, use wget.1

Simply save a list of all the URLs you want to download in a text file (e.g., files.txt) and call wget with the “input file” option -i for your list.

wget -i files.txt

And that’s it!

You’ll see the files dowload to the folder you ran your command in.
