1. Download File Manager Free

I need to use wget to download a file to the directory /var/cache/foobar/ (so, as an example, if I download stackexchange-site-list.txt, it'd be downloaded to /var/cache/foobar/stackexchange-site-list.txt)

Mar 20, 2018 - Examples to download files using curl command line tool. Latest.tar.gz from remote server and save in current directory with same name.

Is this possible? curl would also be an option, but I'd prefer to not use curl, since it's not installed by default.
