I'm currently using windows 7, and I was wondering if there is perhaps a perl script or a program I can install to download files from a given directory. For example, I want to be able to specify that it is in this directory

.../files/txt/

And then give it a pattern to search for, so have it download all the files that start with the prefix "xz_" and the suffix ".txt"

.../files/txt/xz_*.txt

Would like a versatile program, if I need a different extension, then I want to be able to specify it.

Thanks!

by download, do you mean copy? –  Journeyman Geek Feb 23 '12 at 11:58

wget (for windows - not perl, but still CLI) is your friend.
