Slimrat is a fantastic tool that allows you to automate downloads from rapidshare and several other download services.
Debian users can download slimrat using apt using the familiar “sudo apt-get install slimrat”.
Simply invoke the program in a terminal with
$ slimrat downloadlink
One nice feature is the ability to queue up as many downloads as you like in a text file, and then download all, in sequence, with the software successfully negotiating waiting times between downloads.
To download a whole list.txt of files use the ‘-l’ option:
$ slimrat -l list.txt
personally, i would not want to be without this one. absolutely fantastic command line app. However, if you are looking for GUI program of this nature – dont bother with GUI front ends for slimrat, get Tucan instead!
