Hi Monks, I wrote the download manager using Perl. It will be useful for the those (especially students), where there is limitation put forth by college/office in file size to be downloaded. Using this download manager, user can by pass and download files of any size. Also it allows up to 10 simulatenous downloads. So guys use it and have happy downloading. Here is the link for download manager http://sourceforge.net/projects/crazydownloader/. Please feel free to provide your feedback here or in sourgeforge itself. Also I will try to upload the script ASAP. Thanks Edit: Provided Sourceforge URL

    Using a tiny url (or any other) to provide code runs against the grain of the Monastery's guidelines... if you post here, it's going to be here for the next reader who wants to review it but when you post an off-site link, there's no assurance of its durability nor of its changelessness. Worse, this tiny url starts an automated download. That's the reason for my - -.

    OTOH, since the 7-zip version on the project homepage is listed at a megabyte, even readmore tags would scarcely remove the curse of size.

    Therefore, finger wagging in this node is confined to the tiny url -- for which I see no excuse -- and I'll throw in a "keep" vote on the consideration: even though the OP is clearly self-promotional, it's in an appropriate section, CUFP, and seems to me to constitute a notice of an interesting, Perl/Tk program.

      CUFP, and seems to me to constitute a notice of an interesting, Perl/Tk program.

      A cava packager packed binary executable :)

        Obscured link to an .exe download. Sourceforge project that has no source. (SVN browse lists a tarball, but it's empty.) The .exe contains these strings:

        FastMM Borland Edition (c) 2004 - 2008 Inno Setup Setup Data (5.4.2) RegQueryValueExW RegOpenKeyExW RegCloseKey user32.dll kernel32.dll comctl32.dll oleaut32.dll
        which may be completely innocent - but why do you need an installer for a "compiled" Perl program.

        Maybe I just have a nasty suspicious mind, but I vote -- and reap. If the OP comes back with source I'll apologize.

    -- for you. if you give an executable, here i think you had to post the Perl code.

    more.. you create a an exe to allow many people to use it ... and you do it A 64 BIT ONLY !??!!

    may be next time you do it better..

    sorry for my first downvote..

    there are no rules, there are no thumbs..
      I am still working on naming convention so I cant able to upload the code. Once I am done I will upload the code. Actually I am facing problem with Cava 32-bit thats why I didnt created exe for 32 bit machine. By the way thanks for you suggestions :-)

    Thanks Monks for your feedback. Also I can see minimum of 7 down votes for this post. It will be better if you guys can provide is the reason for down votes so that I(even others) can avoid the mistakes in future posts. Thanks once again

      I upvoted you but...you should really publish your source to sourceforge, first for those not using windows 64 (probably most of the monks), second to display your good intentions, third to comply with your own license (GPL) :)

        The original author is free to comply with the GPL or not, as the original author has all rights to relicense the work under any license whatsoever. The GPL is based on copyright, and the original author is the copyright holder of the original work and thus cannot infringe on any license.
