     HGET(1)                                                   HGET(1)

          hget - retrieve a web page corresponding to a url

          hget [ -dhv ] [ -o ofile ] [ -p body ] [ -x netmntpt ] [ -r
          header ] url

          Hget retrieves the web page specified by the URL url and
          writes it, absent the -o option, to standard output.  The
          known URL types are: http and ftp.

          If url is of type HTTP and the -p option is specified, then
          an HTTP POST is performed with body as the data to be

          The -o option is used to keep a local file in sync with a
          web page.  If the web page has been modified later than the
          file, it is copied into the file.  If the file is up to date
          but incomplete, hget will fetch the missing bytes.

          Option -h causes HTTP headers to be printed to standard out-
          put in addition to the transferred web page.

          Option -r sends an arbitrary HTTP header.

          Option -d turns on debugging written to standard error.

          Normally, hget uses the IP stack mounted under /net.  The -x
          option can be used to specify the mount point of a different
          IP stack to use.

          Option -v writes progress lines to standard error once a
          second.  Each line contains two numbers, the bytes trans-
          ferred so far and the total length to be transferred.

          If the environment variable httpproxy is set, it is used as
          a URL denoting an HTTP proxy server.  All HTTP accesses use
          this server to get the page instead of calling the destina-
          tion server.
