I'm using cURL in ubuntu to download some files like

pic001.jpg

pic002.jpg

pic003.jpg

...

pic999.jpg

While some files may be missing from this sequence but when I just use

 curl -O http://foo.bar/pic[001-999].jpg

cURL will download a 404 error page for those missing ones. How can I avoid this?

The option -f prevents curl from generating any output in case of an server error. See the man page.
