Dear ganeshgore81,

U don't have to see, shell script is very helpful, and it's all about imagination and creativity helps u.

When u r download a file be it binary/text, all u need to know is:

1. What program am i using to download?
-FTP
-SCP
-SFTP

2. So u found out the right tool u wanna use to download?

3. Okay, now understand the sequence to download using console mode

4. What else, put the commands in the shell script instead of u do it urself.

5. Add the Integrity/Checksum on the file. U can use:
- MD5SUM for example
to do checksum on remote file & local file.

So finally, what do u really want?

For your information, u can also use "EXPECT" scripts to help u, if the application u use is too interactive.
