disget

Sometimes you want to download a certain file (over FTP in this case), but Google doesn't always give an answer. Although simple, this script takes the work out of finding the right files:

distget

#!/bin/sh
MIRROR='ftp://gentoo.osuosl.org/pub/gentoo/distfiles/'

if [[ "$1" != '' ]]; then
wget -O - "$MIRROR" | grep "$1" | awk '{print $6}' | awk -F\" '{print $2}'
fi
% sh distget cow
