webcat(1)		    General Commands Manual		     webcat(1)

NAME
       webcat -	get a WWW (web)	page using the HTTP protocol; print to stdout

SYNTAX
       webcat [-options] url

DESCRIPTION
       The  webcat program retrieves the specified URL and prints the contents
       to stdout.  With	no options, it prints the contents of the page,	strip-
       ping the	header.	 With the -head	option you get only the	header and not
       the contents.

       If the URL starts with /, it will be interpreted	relative to the	 envi-
       ronment variable	WWW_HOME.  Otherwise it	will be	treated	as an absolute
       URL.

       The webcat program uses http_proxy and no_proxy variables; if the spec-
       ified  URL  matches  the	string in no_proxy, then the host is contacted
       directly.  Otherwise the	request	goes through the proxy server named in
       http_proxy.    See  http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/Daemon/User/Prox-
       ies/ProxyClients.html for details.

OPTIONS
       These options can appear	in any combination:

       -debug		 Print the header, and then the	contents of the	 page.
			 Without  this	option,	 prints	 just the contents, no
			 header.

       -head		 Print only the	header,	and not	the  contents  of  the
			 page.	 Without  this option, prints the contents, no
			 header.  If -debug option is in effect,  -head	 is  a
			 no-op.	 -post argSTring Do a post request, passing in
			 the arg string.

       -noCache		 add a no-cache	field to the request.

       -proxy <server>	 send the request through the specified	proxy server
