nugget http://foo.com/bar.jpg
# downloads bar.jpg and stores it in the current directory

nugget http://foo.com/bar.jpg -O baz.jpg
# saves it as baz.jpg. you can also do lowercase -o

if you get a statusCode of 300 or greater nugget will stop. you can force it to stream the response into a file anyway by doing nugget http://404link.com/file.html -f or --force works too
you can also download multiple files, just pass multiple urls:
download multiple


The following options are recognized by nugget:
-o|-O|--out - specify the filename to write to. this only works if you are downloading a single file -d|--dir - save files in a directory other than the current one. -c|--continue - resume downloads if a partially complete target file already exists. If the target file exists and is the same size as the remote file, nothing will be done. -f|--force - force the server response to be saved to the target file, even if it's a non-successful status code. -s|--sockets - default Infinity. specify the number of http sockets to use at once (this controls concurrency) -q|--quiet - disable logging --proxy - specify a proxy to use --no-strict-ssl - disable strict ssl
