Readme

Usage
=====

  python -m wget [options] <URL>

  options:
    -o --output FILE|DIR   output filename or directory


API Usage
=========

  >>> import wget
  >>> url = 'http://www.futurecrew.com/skaven/song_files/mp3/razorback.mp3'
  >>> filename = wget.download(url)
  100% [................................................] 3841532 / 3841532>
