YAZ URL fetch utility


yaz-url [-H name:value] [-m method] [-O fname] [-p fname] [-R num] [-u user/password] [-v] [-x proxy] [url...]


yaz-url is utility to get web content. It is very limited in functionality compared to programs such as curl, wget.

The options must precede the URL given on the command line, to take effect.

Fetched HTTP content is written to stdout, unless option -O is given.


-H name:value

Specifies HTTP header content with name and value. This option can be given multiple times (for different names, of course).

-m method

Specifies the HTTP method to be used for the next URL. Default is method "GET". However, option -p sets it to "POST".

-O fname

Sets output filename for HTTP content.

-p fname

Sets a file to be POSTed in the following URL.

-R num

Sets maximum number of HTTP redirects to be followed. A value of zero disables follow of HTTP redirects.

-u user/password

Specifies a user and a password to be used in HTTP basic authentication in the following URL fetch. The user and password must be separated by a slash (thus it is not possible to specify a user with a slash in it).


Makes yaz-url dump each HTTP request/response to stdout.

-x proxy

Specifies a proxy to be used for URL fetch.
