Faster Command line Download Manager for Linux

1) "AXEL" --- less interactive but lite and fast Download Manager

How to download and install :-- download from "Software Center" directly
OR
By Command Line:- open terminal and write

# sudo apt-get install axel 

OR can download installation deb file-
$ wget http://wilmer.gaast.net/downloads/axel-1.0b.tar.gz

$ tar -zxvf axel-1.0b.tar.gz

$ ./configure

# make install

How to Use :-- open terminal and write
$ axel --help

To start Download :--
$ axel -n [no. of parallel connection (eg. 4)] [Download link (eg. http://abc.com/nvn.zip) ]

2) "PROZILLA" ---- better GUI than AXEL but it is also Command Line

How can Download and install :-- 


open terminal and execute below command (debian/Ubuntu users)

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tldm217/tahutek.net

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install prozilla

To use :-- open terminal and write
$ proz --help

To start Download --:
$ proz
[Download link (eg. http://abc.com/nvn.zip) ]

open terminal and execute below command (Kubuntu/fedora users)
$ sudo yum install prozilla








I suggest for PROZILLA because it have RESUME capability and Download speed as "Internet Download Manager"

if have any problem to install ...please write
