puf is a tool that can be used to download single files or mirror entire servers. It is similar to GNU wget (and has a partly-compatible command line), but has the ability to do many downloads in parallel. This is very useful if you have a high-bandwidth Internet connection.
Release Notes: This release fixed a format string vulnerability in error output, and an overflow resulting in bad bandwidth averages for very big downloads or very fast networks. Most switches are now URL-based, a -xq switch was added, the -p switch has been renamed to -B (wget-like), and the -ri switch was replaced by -p, -pr, -pr+ & -pr++ (somewhat wget-like). It no longer compiles on systems without snprintf.
Release Notes: This release adds -xH, -ib, and -iU switches. The licencing has been clarified in some places.
Release Notes: Basic proxy support has been added.
Release Notes: A switch for source address binding was added, and a spec file for building RPMs was created.
Release Notes: A bug fix was made for a buffer overflow which caused a segfault when an HTTP server sent a very long header. The default for -ll was reduced to 10.
