resume a file using curl or wget?

I'm looking for a Windows command-line utility similar to curl, but that doesn't trash the download if the internet connection gets temporarily disconnected.

If it's possible to make curl behave like this, that would be great too.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I use wget for such downloads under both Windows and Linux which has an optional argument (-c) that resumes the download of a partially downloaded file.

A Windows port of wget can be found here.
