Okay this is presumably and easier one. let`s say there is a site, that has has images www.site.com/files/image1.gif through www.site.com/files/image30.gif, but they are not linked on a page, how do I get OE to download them for me?

This is very easy:

http://www.site.com/files/image{:1..30}.gif

This didn`t work. the files were actually named ruth1.gif up to at least ruth30.gif and when I entered it :ruth(:1...30).gif i got a bunch of blank files called 1.gif, 2.gif etc (not ruth1.gif etc)

Did you use:

http://www.site.com/files/ruth{:1..30}.gif

?

Hi

Let me show you specifically. (adult content)

http://www.homestead.com/jebsadventurebound/files/Ruiz/ruth1.gif

I used http://www.homestead.com/jebsadventurebound/files/Ruiz/ruth{:1..30.gif}

Have I made a typo? the 1..30 is bolded and the brackets are blue.

WAIT. I just found my typo. Sorry to waste your time. Is there a way to get all files in the directory RUIZ, in case other directories with gif images are in there?
Oleg Chernavin 03/27/2006 02:51 am
Yes, the correct URL will be:

http://www.homestead.com/jebsadventurebound/files/Ruiz/ruth{:1..30}.gif

I am not sure about getting all files in the Ruiz directory. You can try to load:

http://www.homestead.com/jebsadventurebound/files/Ruiz/

But in most cases, servers block directory listing access.

Oleg.
