You have to admit when it comes to downloading, nothing beats wget. However almost every time I say this I find someone complaining about a pause option. So here’s a little less known trick for beginners.
'Ctrl + C' to pause the download which you started normally using something like this:
Now to resume it go to the same location where you were downloading and wget the download file with
wget -c some_random_archive_file.zip
And your download will resume from where it was paused. Enjoy! 🙂
