nt - A download manager for X
nt [OPTIONS] ... [URL]
nt (also known as Downloader for X) is a Linux GUI program for
downloading files from the Internet. It supports FTP and HTTP (not
completly yet but the current implementation is quite enough for
downloading). The program will resume interupted downloads if the
server supports it too. nt is like kget for Linux and ReGet or
GetRight for Microsoft Windows (tm).
Options are distinguished from URLs in that they begin with a minus
sign (-). One may specify any number of options and URLs.
Many of the options can be used to control a pre-existing instance of
nt. When nt finds an instance of itself already running, it will
forward the command to the already running instance for execution. If
there no pre-existing instance is found, then it will perform the
requested operations itself.
The command line will be parsed from left to right. This means that
the requested operations will be performed in that order.
nt accepts the following options:
URL Add the indicated file to the download queue. A dialog box will
appear in which you can indicate where the file should be saved
and set other options. If nt is already running, then the new
instance will simply ask the existing instance to add the file
and then it will exit. If existing instance already have this
URL in queue in inactive state than it will be moved to *wait*
Print a brief description of the command line options and exit.
Show the version number and exit.
Show basic information about current state of a pre-existing
instance of the program.
Show current achieved download speed of a pre-existing instance
of the program. The speed is a part of information which is
displayed by --info.
Start Downloader in the minimized (iconified) state. This will
not minimize a pre-existing instance of the program.
Set the timeout for exiting when the program is idle.
Switch to low speed.
Switch to medium speed.
Disable speed limit.
-d, --directory PATH
Set directory for saving downloaded files. This applies only to
files added to an pre-existing instance by running the nt
command with URLs on the command line.
Remove completed downloads from the queue.
Rerun all failed downloads.
Start Downloader without X interface. (It will display the log
on stdout but there will be no user interface of any kind. The
only way to control it is by running nt with appropriate
