curl behaves weird

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm currently trying to make a script that does a nice looking download. As a part of it, i'd like to use curl's --progress-bar option. It worked in other scripts i've been using, but it doesnt want to for my test script :( In order to avoid canceling because of existing (empty) file, DEST gets deleted first Code: DEST="$HOME/fedora.iso" URL="http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/19/Live/x86_64/Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-19-1.iso" rm -f $DEST curl --progress-bar -o "$DEST" "$URL" rm -f $DEST curl --progress-bar "$URL&qu (HowTos)
