NAME

slimrat - Command-line utility for downloading files  

VERSION

1.0  

DESCRIPTION

  Command-line download manager, capable of downloading files from
  several free download providers.

 

SYNOPSIS

  slimrat [OPTION...] [LINK]...

 

OPTIONS

--help
  Prints a summary how to use the client.

--man
  Prints a manual how to use the client.

--daemon
  Makes slimrat work in the background, by properly forking and redirecting
  the output to a specified logfile. Only one file can be backgrounded at a
  time, to support multiple instances you'll need to specify differend
  state files to save the instances PID in.

--kill
  Kills a single active client, by looking up the PID in a predefined state file.

--list
  Uses the given file as a queue-file containing URLs.

--check
  Do not download the loaded URLs, just check them.

--to
  Specifies the target directory for the downloaded files.

--address
  Makes the download client bind to a specific address.

--config
  Load custom configuration file.

--debug
  Enables maximal verbosity, which includes a lot of text on the screen and the generation
  of an additional dump archive.
  WARNING: do not use this option by default, as it keeps a whole lot of extra information
           in memory (including _all_ downloaded items).

--quiet
  Makes slimrat less verbose, only displaying errors and warnings.

 

EXAMPLES

  slimrat http://rapidshare.com/files/012345678/somefile.xxx
  slimrat -l urls.dat -d
