Saving a text file from web to local from Linux command line

"wget is a good tool, and can recursively grab files from a webserver.

"A simple way to download webpage recursively.

wget -r -p -k -c -np URL

wget -r -p -k -c -np -R zip,gz,rar URL

or you could use httrack, which has GUI (native and web) for configuration (like filter rules)."
