Download file from the web using curl



The following command basically does the same thing as wget.  This can come in handy since OS X and some linux distros do not ship with wget by default.

curl -O -L www.incredigeek.com/home/downloads/wget/wget-1.14.tar.gz

The two options do the following

-O, –remote-name Write output to a file named as the remote file
-L, –location Follow redirects (H)
