Re: Oh no

Yes, I do understand that. For me curl is just a version of (nc)ftp which supports more protocols (though I don't think it has the interactive bit that ftp clients have).

Point of what I was saying is that this is in fact a document intended to be read by a human which had a link from another document intended to be read by a human, and it is annoying to me that Mozilla have seen fit to remove support for ftp protocol that would have made that process more simple (probably it would have fallen down because it was PS file anyway, but still it is irritating). Point of mention of curl was sarcastic response to remark by someone implying I was too stupid (or too female, or something) to fetch it by command-line: I am not, I just think it's annoying that mozilla have dropped support for a perfectly good and useful protocol.
