PHTTPGET(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		   PHTTPGET(8)

NAME
     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 downloaded
     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 downloaded.

     The freebsd-update(8) and portsnap(8) tools use phttpget to download bi-
     nary 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 de-
		      fault is "phttpget/0.1".

     HTTP_TIMEOUT     Timeout for HTTP request in seconds.

SEE ALSO
     fetch(1), freebsd-update(8), portsnap(8)
