       lwp-download - fetch large files from the net

	lwp-download [-a] <url> [<local file>]

       The lwp-download program will down load the document specified by the URL given as the
       first command line argument to a local file.  The local filename used to save the document
       is guessed from the URL unless specified as the second command line argument.

       The lwp-download program is implemented using the libwww-perl library.  It is better
       suited to down load big files than the lwp-request program because it does not store the
       file in memory.	Another benefit is that it will keep you updated about its progress and
       that you don't have much options to worry about.

       Use the "-a" option to save the file in text (ascii) mode.  Might make a difference on
       dosish systems.
