Re: New Package: htget 0.1-1 (source i386)


	From what I can see, wget seems superior: it can download also
 from ftp sites, as well as http servers; they both can be reliably
 backgrounded (I have seen wget restart a broken connection, redial 5
 times, and continue all without manual intervantion)

	wget has a full featured recusrion mechanism. htget does not
 seem to have one. wget has resume, and timeouts, the only thing it is
 missing is the minimum rate timeout.

	Hmm. I guess I'll stick to wget then. minimum rate timeouts
 are not that important

	Thanks for the info. I like being able to make informed
 decisions ;-)
