Wget Windows Binary

Posted on by

GNU Wget GNU Wget is a free software package for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS, the most widely used Internet protocols. It is a non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc. Wget: missing URL is what wget replies to that, because you are missing the argument to -O. Also, I think this probably doesn't solve the OP's problem anyway. Curl / Download / Windows downloads. Curl 7.74.0 for Windows. Related: Changelog Downloads FAQ License Manual.

What does WGET Do?

Once installed, the WGET command allows you to download files over the TCP/IP protocols: FTP, HTTP and HTTPS.

Windows

If you’re a Linux or Mac user, WGET is either already included in the package you’re running or it’s a trivial case of installing from whatever repository you prefer with a single command.

Unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple in Windows (although it’s still very easy!).

To run WGET you need to download, unzip and install manually.

Install WGET in Windows 10

Download the classic 32 bit version 1.14 here or, go to this Windows binaries collection at Eternally Bored here for the later versions and the faster 64 bit builds.

Here is the downloadable zip file for version 1.2 64 bit.

If you want to be able to run WGET from any directory inside the command terminal, you’ll need to learn about path variables in Windows to work out where to copy your new executable. If you follow these steps, you’ll be able to make WGET a command you can run from any directory in Command Prompt.

Run WGET from anywhere

Firstly, we need to determine where to copy WGET.exe.

After you’d downloaded wget.exe (or unpacked the associated distribution zip files) open a command terminal by typing “cmd” in the search menu:

We’re going to move wget.exe into a Windows directory that will allow WGET to be run from anywhere.

First, we need to find out which directory that should be. Type:

path

You should see something like this:

Thanks to the “Path” environment variable, we know that we need to copy wget.exe to the c:WindowsSystem32 folder location.

Go ahead and copy WGET.exe to the System32 directory and restart your Command Prompt.

Restart command terminal and test WGET

If you want to test WGET is working properly, restart your terminal and type:

Binary file viewer windows 10

wget -h

If you’ve copied the file to the right place, you’ll see a help file appear with all of the available commands.

Wget Powershell

So, you should see something like this:

Now it’s time to get started.

Get started with WGET

Seeing that we’ll be working in Command Prompt, let’s create a download directory just for WGET downloads.

To create a directory, we’ll use the command md (“make directory”).

Change to the c:/ prompt and type:

md wgetdown

Then, change to your new directory and type “dir” to see the (blank) contents.

Now, you’re ready to do some downloading.

Example commands

Once you’ve got WGET installed and you’ve created a new directory, all you have to do is learn some of the finer points of WGET arguments to make sure you get what you need.

The Gnu.org WGET manual is a particularly useful resource for those inclined to really learn the details.

If you want some quick commands though, read on. I’ve listed a set of instructions to WGET to recursively mirror your site, download all the images, CSS and JavaScript, localise all of the URLs (so the site works on your local machine), and save all the pages as a .html file.

To mirror your site execute this command:

wget -r https://www.yoursite.com

To mirror the site and localise all of the urls:

wget --convert-links -r https://www.yoursite.com

To make a full offline mirror of a site:

wget --mirror --convert-links --adjust-extension --page-requisites --no-parent https://www.yoursite.com

To mirror the site and save the files as .html:

wget --html-extension -r https://www.yoursite.com

To download all jpg images from a site:

wget -A '*.jpg' -r https://www.yoursite.com

For more filetype-specific operations, check out this useful thread on Stack.

Set a different user agent:

Some web servers are set up to deny WGET’s default user agent – for obvious, bandwidth saving reasons. You could try changing your user agent to get round this. For example, by pretending to be Googlebot:

wget --user-agent='Googlebot/2.1 (+https://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)' -r https://www.yoursite.com

Wget “spider” mode:

Wget can fetch pages without saving them which can be a useful feature in case you’re looking for broken links on a website. Remember to enable recursive mode, which allows wget to scan through the document and look for links to traverse.

wget --spider -r https://www.yoursite.com

You can also save this to a log file by adding this option:

wget --spider -r https://www.yoursite.com -o wget.log

Enjoy using this powerful tool, and I hope you’ve enjoyed my tutorial. Comments welcome!

Unix Binary Release • Mac OS X Binary Release • iOS Binary Release • Windows Binary Release

You can install ImageMagick from source. However, if you don't have a proper development environment or if you're anxious to get started, download a ready-to-run Unix or Windows executable. Before you download, you may want to review recent changes to the ImageMagick distribution.

ImageMagick source and binary distributions are available from a variety of FTP and Web mirrors around the world.

Unix Binary Release

These are the Unix variations that we support. If your system is not on the list, try installing from source. Although ImageMagick runs fine on a single core computer, it automagically runs in parallel on multi-core systems reducing run times considerably.

VersionDescription
magickComplete portable application on Linux, no installation required. Just download and run. AppImages require FUSE and libc to run. Many distributions have a working FUSE setup out-of-the-box. However if it is not working for you, you must install and configure FUSE manually.

ImageMagick-i686-pc-mingw32.tar.gzMinGW

Verify its message digest.

ImageMagick RPM's are self-installing. Simply type the following command and you're ready to start using ImageMagick:

You'll need the libraries as well:

Note, if there are missing dependencies, install them from the EPEL repo.

For other systems, create (or choose) a directory to install the package into and change to that directory, for example:

Next, extract the contents of the package. For example:

Set the MAGICK_HOME environment variable to the path where you extracted the ImageMagick files. For example:

If the bin subdirectory of the extracted package is not already in your executable search path, add it to your PATH environment variable. For example:

On Linux and Solaris machines add $MAGICK_HOME/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:

Finally, to verify ImageMagick is working properly, type the following on the command line:

Congratulations, you have a working ImageMagick distribution under Unix or Linux and you are ready to use ImageMagick to convert, compose, or edit your images or perhaps you'll want to use one of the Application Program Interfaces for C, C++, Perl, and others.

Mac OS X Binary Release

We recommend Homebrew which provides pre-built binaries for Mac (some users prefer MacPorts). Download HomeBrew and type:

ImageMagick depends on Ghostscript fonts. To install them, type:

The brew command downloads and installs ImageMagick with many of its delegate libraries (e.g. JPEG, PNG, Freetype, etc). Homebrew no longer allows configurable builds; if you need different compile options (e.g. librsvg support), you can download the ImageMagick Mac OS X distribution we provide:

VersionDescription
ImageMagick-x86_64-apple-darwin20.1.0.tar.gzmacOS High Sierra

Verify its message digest.

Create (or choose) a directory to install the package into and change to that directory, for example:

Next, extract the contents of the package. For example: Games free download for mac full version.

Set the MAGICK_HOME environment variable to the path where you extracted the ImageMagick files. For example:

If the bin subdirectory of the extracted package is not already in your executable search path, add it to your PATH environment variable. For example:

Set the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable:

Finally, to verify ImageMagick is working properly, type the following on the command line:

Note, the display program requires the X11 server available on your Mac OS X installation DVD. Once that is installed, you will also need to set export DISPLAY=:0.

The best way to deal with all the exports is to put them at the end of your .profile file

Congratulations, you have a working ImageMagick distribution under Mac OS X and you are ready to use ImageMagick to convert, compose, or edit your images or perhaps you'll want to use one of the Application Program Interfaces for C, C++, Perl, and others.

iOS Binary Release

~Claudio provides iOS builds of ImageMagick.

Download iOS Distribution

You can download the iOS distribution directly from ImageMagick's repository.

There are always 2 packages for the compiled ImageMagick:

  • iOSMagick-VERSION-libs.zip
  • iOSMagick-VERSION.zip

The first one includes headers and compiled libraries that have been used to compile ImageMagick. Most users would need this one.

ImageMagick compiling script for iOS OS and iOS Simulator

To run the script:

where VERSION is the version of ImageMagick you want to compile (i.e.: 7.0.10-58, svn, ..)

This script compiles ImageMagick as a static library to be included in iOS projects and adds support for

  • png
  • jpeg
  • tiff

Upon successful compilation a folder called IMPORT_ME is created on your ~/Desktop. You can import it into your Xcode project.

Wget
Xcode project settings

After including everything into Xcode please also make sure to have these settings (Build tab of the project information):

  • Other Linker Flags: -lMagickCore-Q16 -lMagickWand-Q16 -ljpeg -lpng -lbz2 -lz
  • Header Search Paths: $(SRCROOT) - make it Recursive
  • Library Search Paths: $(SRCROOT) - make it Recursive

On the lower left click on the small-wheel and select: Add User-Defined Setting

  • Key: OTHER_CFLAGS
  • Value: -Dmacintosh=1

Wget For Windows 64 Bit

Sample project

A sample project is available for download. It is not updated too often, but it does give an idea of all the settings and some ways to play around with ImageMagick in an iOS application.

Windows Binary Release

ImageMagick runs on Windows 10 (x86 & x64), Windows 8 (x86 & x64), Windows 7 (x86 & x64), Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista (x86 & x64) with Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008 (x86 & x64) with Service Pack 2, and Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64).

The amount of memory can be an important factor, especially if you intend to work on large images. A minimum of 512 MB of RAM is recommended, but the more RAM the better. Although ImageMagick runs well on a single core computer, it automagically runs in parallel on multi-core systems reducing run times considerably.

The Windows version of ImageMagick is self-installing. Simply click on the appropriate version below and it will launch itself and ask you a few installation questions. Versions with Q8 in the name are 8 bits-per-pixel component (e.g. 8-bit red, 8-bit green, etc.), whereas, Q16 in the filename are 16 bits-per-pixel component. A Q16 version permits you to read or write 16-bit images without losing precision but requires twice as much resources as the Q8 version. Versions with dll in the filename include ImageMagick libraries as dynamic link libraries. Unless you have a Windows 32-bit OS, we recommend this version of ImageMagick for 64-bit Windows:

VersionDescription
ImageMagick-7.0.10-58-Q16-HDRI-x64-dll.exeWin64 dynamic at 16 bits-per-pixel component

Or choose from these alternate Windows binary distributions:

To verify ImageMagick is working properly, type the following in an Command Prompt window:

If you have any problems, you likely need vcomp120.dll. To install it, download Visual C++ Redistributable Package.

Note, use a double quote (') rather than a single quote (') for the ImageMagick command line under Windows:
