This question is similar to Download files from a list but it is not the same as I want to go beyond this. Please do not close as a duplicate.
I have a list of files to download in a text file
foo.txt. There is a directory
foo which I'm in, and I use
wget -i ../foo.txt to pull the files down. That's all fine and dandy.
However, what I need to do is download the files in there with a specific type of naming pattern. It's pulling down
json files that are being spit out by API calls to a specific server, but I need it to be saved in a specific pattern such as
foo_1.json, and because it's not actually linking to a
foo_1.json file it won't save it as such.
Is there any way to expand upon the
wget functionality to save files it downloads in a specific filename pattern, say, sequentially?
If not, alternative CLI methods not using
wget are acceptable.
