I present you the first English entry in my blog and the first release of my 'rsdl' tool for Linux. It's basically a tiny shell script which does all the pesky work for you. There's still a few things to fix, but please try it out, you won't be disappointed.

Be careful though, as it won't (yet) check if it would overwrite a file or not - one could say that it is still beta software. The only "special" requirement is 'curl', so it should still run on most linux distributions. If you make a list of your RS links, you'll be able to do the following:

cat list | xargs rsdl

If you find or even fix some error, please let me know or send me patches. Further updates will always be available here.

Download (md5)

Have fun, and don't tell these guys from RS ;-)

PS: This program has been written only for the "Free Download" feature, and not (yet?) for the premium zone.

15. 3. : Meanwhile I've found out, that there exist other tools which do a similar job. However, I still prefer this one at the moment because of it's simplicity: No overblown interface, no config files and almost no dependencies.
