wget or curl on Windows

Hey everyone,

Just a quick post on a Window’s equivalent to wget/curl.

To start, you’ll need to open PowerShell (run > powershell.exe). To retrieve the page, you’ll just need to enter the following one liner:

(new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://www.whatibroke.com','C:my_output_file.txt')

The page contents will be stored in the output file provided as the second parameter to DownloadFile. To view it, just open the file in a text editor.

If you’d rather something with a GUI, winwget has been recommended on SuperUser.
