    Need GNU Wget for Windows

    Hi,
    Does any one is familiar with GNU Wget tool for Windows. I am looking for a command line tool which can help me to retrieve files from internet. I want a effective tool some what like a download manager. I have used the Wget in Linux and it is quiet efficient in getting the files properly download. The same I am looking for Windows. I not used it many times so I am also interested in knowing the features of this tool. Does this work same as it works on a Linux platform.

    It is freely available and gives all the supported features that you can use on Linux platform. Some of the best features of this tool are, easy mirroring a site, getting large files from internet, etc. You can manually control the tool by pausing, aborting the download using the REST and RANGE option. You can use mirror directories, nlr message files that supports multiple languages and other options. You can use it on Windows.
