What is the windows equivalent of wget?

someone showed me a really quick way to get folders off an ftp site via the shell on a Mac using the command "wget -r ftp://" (then the address of the ftp site folder location) and it would download to whatever folder i was in, keeping all the sub directories the same as the ftp site

seemed really quick and easy, but how do i do a similar thing on a PC?

wget is a linux program. It may seem like a command but in actuality it is just a handy little console application that you can invoke to download files from the web using the HTTP or FTP protocol. For Windows you will have to find a similar program to do the same from the command line..
