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!
