phttpget -- retrieve multiple files via pipelined HTTP SYNOPSIS
phttpget server file ... DESCRIPTION
The phttpget utility is a minimalist pipelined HTTP client, which is used to retrieve multiple files from one server, and saves the down- loaded files in the current working directory, using the last portion of their download path as file names. By making several "in flight" HTTP requests, it can dramatically increase performance when a large number of small files need to be down- loaded. The freebsd-update(8) and portnap(8) tools use phttpget to download binary patch files. ENVIRONMENT
HTTP_PROXY URL of the proxy to use for HTTP requests. HTTP_PROXY_AUTH Authorization parameters for the HTTP proxy. HTTP_USER_AGENT The User-Agent string to use for HTTP requests. The default is ``phttpget/0.1''. HTTP_TIMEOUT Timeout for HTTP request in seconds. SEE ALSO

The phttpget utility was written by Colin Percival <> for use with portsnap(8) and later with freebsd-update(8). This manual page was written by Xin LI <>. BSD
