Note that Wget 1.10 does support files larger than 2GB.

Exactly how large u mean ?

I just tried to download a 4.4 GB ISO image from

an FTP site (I was using wget-1.9), I got this:

"Length: 382,015,488 (unauthoritative)"

ie, it says that the length of the file it is

downloading is about 380 MB not 4.4 GB !

Patch for better handling of '303 See Other'
A patch (http://membled.com/work/patches/wget/) to allow wget to follow 303 See Other redirects (and at least print the destination URL when it does not).

Tremendous!
wget is a tremendously useful piece of software. I use it constantly to download large files over my slow connection, using the "-c" option to continue disconnected downloads. This is one piece of software which I truly love.

Get a whole website including pictures, css, etc
This utility is awesome!!

You can get a whole website including pictures, css, etc and it will change all the links for you such that the site works on your local machine.

wget -m -p -k url

(wget) Great Utility
For anyone that might be considering getting this utility, I would highly recommend it. I use it for all of my downloads of large files because it can do it in the background, continue if the download got interupted (if the server allows it), and can keep trying forever. (Also, the "web-suck" comes in handy when trying to download a site without an FTP login.) I consider it a must-have utility.
