Automatic download

All data files on this website are provided for download by using the HTTP/1.2 protocol. Protected sections require credentials to be sent with the HTTP request.

Unattended downloads of regularly updated data to local disk files can be set up using one of the many tools for HTTP mirroring.

A non-exhaustive list of such batch tools supporting automatic authentication is:

  • The recommended WWW network utility wGet
  • The w3c command line tool which is part of the W3C Protocol Library
  • The lwp-request script which is part of the libwww-perl distribution
