wget is a command-line utility for downloading files from the Internet. It is commonly used in Unix-like operating systems, including Linux and Termux.

To use wget, you need to provide a URL that points to the file you want to download. wget will retrieve the file from the specified URL and save it to the current directory.

Here is an example of how to use wget to download a file in Termux:

  1. Open Termux and navigate to the directory where you want to download the file. Use the cd command to change directories. For example, to go to the home directory, you can use the following command:
cd ~
  1. Use the wget a command followed by the URL of the file you want to download. For example, to download a file from “http://example.com/file.zip”, you can use the following command:
wget http://example.com/file.zip

This will download the file “file.zip” from the specified URL and save it to the current directory.

You can use the ls command to list the files in the current directory and verify that the file has been downloaded.

ls

This will list the files in the current directory, including the file you just downloaded.

You can also use the wget command with additional options to customize the download process. For example, you can use the -O option to specify a different file name for the downloaded file, or the -c option to resume a download that was interrupted. To view a full list of available options, you can use the wget --help command.
