Hi,

I would need a ruby "wget version" which works on linux and windows.

I would like to feed it an URL to a .tar.bz2 or .zip or .tar.gz file and
have it download. That's what it basically should do.

Right now I use

system 'wget '+the_url

which does not work on windows easily (but will work on pretty much all
the linuxes out there)

I once wrote a minimal ruby wget wrapper but it has some problems as the
code is years old and messy :/  so I was wondering if anyone is using
some ruby-wget thing?
