A quick question, but which I don't believe has been asked here or at SO.
Does Mathematica have a simple way to just download a file from the web? i.e. if I have a list of PDF links (~ 2,000), can I use Mathematica to quickly take them and save them to my system. The obvious way that I've used in the past is to
Import the data, but since we're talking large-ish PDFs I wonder if there's a way to skip that step.
I have used wget for this sort of thing in the past, but just seeing if there's an easy way to do it within Mathematica. The 'Web Operations' section of the documentation does not seem to have any obvious reference to this. If not, I will obviously just use the 'proper' tool.
