Issue with batch downloading

Will do about the forums, SleepyDude. Sounds like fun!

One last question about our wget solution: Since there will be one wget command per file, and there is a large number of them to download, I'm assuming I'll need a batch file.

 

But downloading an image can take a few moments. Does a batch file know enough to pace itself accordingly? Or will it simply zoom down the list without pausing, creating a big mess in memory?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Yes one per line will work because the batch will not pass to the next line until wget finish.
