Scanning a url and downloading files.

I understand wget is used to download files. Is there a way I can search a url for what files are available for me to download. I need to install a plug-in from an adobe website.

Thanks a bunch.

Not sure if I understand what you mean, but wget is able to download the web page onto your local disc, where you can use other Linux commands to search and extract text patterns such as urls. Among many other options, wget also has the ability to follow ftp links (--follow-ftp).

If I remember correctly, most of Adobe's links will lead to a javascript to open up something else, so it might not be as simple as just getting the link.
