Alien::Build::Plugin::Fetch::Wget - Plugin for fetching files using wget

version 2.83

use alienfile;

share {
  start_url '';
  plugin 'Fetch::Wget';

WARNING: This plugin is somewhat experimental at this time.

This plugin provides a fetch based on the "wget" command. It works with other fetch plugins (that is, the first one which succeeds will be used). Most of the time the best plugin to use will be Alien::Build::Plugin::Download::Negotiate, but for some SSL bootstrapping it may be desirable to try "wget" first.

Protocols supported: "http", "https"

The full path to the "wget" command. The default is usually correct.

Ignored by this plugin. Provided for compatibility with some other fetch plugins.
