scripts default iconSirobot for Download Managers Publisher's description

Sirobot is a perl script for the console to make downloads faster.

Sirobot is a perl script for the console to make downloads faster.
It can traverse into a WWW tree and download the whole page including all images and linked documents.

Unlike wget, sirobot is able to download more than one file at the same time.

Sirobot runs on all platforms that have Perl and the necessary libraries installed. As Sirobot was written in Perl it needs no compilation.

- Download webpages recursively
Sirobot not only downloads all specified URLs but can also fetch all images and links listed if you wish. You may specify a particular depth and limit which files to get to prevent downloading the whole www.
- Continue aborted downloads
Even if you started to download the file with another program, it can finish it (if supported by the server)
- Concurrent jobs
This is quite useful if you have to get a lot of files because Sirobot is able to fetch several files (called jobs) at once
- Convert links
Sirobot can convert absolute links inside badly designed pages so you can easily browse through the files offline
- Pattern matching
You may specify regular expressions that control which files will be get (eg. to prevent downloading unwanted tar, mpg, ps, ... files)
- Documentation
Documentation is now written in POD which can be converted to other documentation formats. HTML and man are already included in the archive.
- Graphical Frontend
Roel has developed a Perl/GTK based frontend for Sirobot called Sirofront. It is available here. There's also a screenshot availabe.
- Support for SSL (https)
Sirobot can handle https style schemes (eg. https://www.openssl.org/) if LWP has SSL support. You'll need an additional library, eg. Crypt-SSLeay.
- Other features
Of course, sirobot can use a proxy, access protected pages with a user/password combination and takes care of areas not allowed for robots. It also takes advantage of the Curses library if available to improve it's UI.
