wget: download in background, resume download

wget -bqc
  • -b Go to background immediately after startup. If no output file is specified via the -o, output is redirected to wget-log.
  • -q Turn off Wget’s output.
  • -c Continue getting a partially-downloaded file. This is useful when you want to finish up a download started by a previous instance of Wget, or by another program.
