Lets say we need to download a range of URLs named like so:

http://example.com/file[1] to http://example.com/file[9]

A normal range specifier: http://example.com/file[0:9] generates: http://example.com/file0 to http://example.com/file9

And http://example.com/file[[0:9]] generates a single URL: http://example.com/file[[0:9]]

Neither gives the proper list. How would one write this pattern for DownThemAll?

so essentially you want to download all files from example.com/file*? –  wizlog Nov 7 '11 at 17:57
It may not be possibe to only download specific file names, however, you could always click on "URL" and sort via url, so you would see the numbered urls... –  wizlog Nov 7 '11 at 18:00
@wizlog: example.com/file[1], example.com/file[2], etc. –  Unsigned Nov 9 '11 at 14:53
No, DTA supports batch patterns. –  Unsigned Nov 9 '11 at 14:54
Humm... I'll see what I can find. –  wizlog Nov 9 '11 at 17:42
