File Downloader for ReactOS SVN
Posted: Mon Aug 06, 2007 9:16 pm
Could someone write a simple application to download a file? We need something that will simply download a url. That way we don't have to keep copying download.exe and download.xml to the SVN version to get applications.

This is why vdk is included in the RosTE. It's a utility that allows you to open and close virtual disks and put stuff in them.

Why not wget?

Yes, wget would be great !!!

If you're talking about win-get, it's written in pascal, which automatically disqualifies it.

no sure not , we are talking about "GNU Wget"
Its written in C, Commandline only and has am Windows Port....

tested wget on ReactOS and some of the ROS bugs make wget unusable. We could commit it to our source but for now it's mostly unusable.

Well, 'cause aria2
seems waaays better (written in C++ and multiplatform) !
Project page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/aria2

I think if such a program has to be inclued in ReactOS it should be as simple as possible. Wget would be the best candidate IMHO.

Umm, you people do realize that the current explorer shell also is a web browser? And supports FTP?

And you realize that the current explorer shell is not very stable ?
btw. with wget you can write very quick an downloadscript
this could be an reason too.

My point still stands. You already have a tool to use to get more stuff. And as I said earlier, you can always fall back to vdk.

That is the reason I started this post was because it was a pain to open the volume and put the files in. And another thing, you said yourself that we are not going to put a browser in the new shell. For SVN testing I think it would be in our best interest to add a file downloader whether it be wget or aria2 or a new one that one of the developers write.
