Hi all (and John Wiegley),

I wrote a function eshell/wget - or eshell/fakewget - that uses
url-retrieve-synchronously to download files from the internets.
It is here (and eev is in ELPA):


I don't recommend using it for big files because it doesn't output any
progress reports until it finishes. I wrote it for a workshop that
will have several participants who are Windows users who have never
used a terminal in their lives - see this thread:


but I think that it may be useful in other situations, too.

I don't know how to advertise it. I looked for an index of
user-written eshell extensions and I only found this:


and I thought that it would be a good idea to announce it here first -
and ask for advice.

  Cheers =),
