               network, it is often required to connect through proxies.
               alternatively, set the environment variable SFK_PROXY :
                 set SFK_PROXY=myproxyhost:8000
               to find out what proxy your browser is using, see
               - Firefox: tools/options/advanced/network/settings
               - IE: tools/internet options/connections/lan settings
   -path2name  include web path in generated output name,
               to create unique names on multiple downloads.
               this option is default on chained processing.

   -nodom      do not include domain name in output name.
   -nopath     do not include any path and domain information

               does not contain any relative filename.
   -quiet      or -noprog shows no download progress indicator.
   -quiet=2    show no "done" info line.
   -addext     always add a filename extension like .txt, .html

automatic name expansions
   http:// is added automatically. short ip's like .100 are
   extended like depending on your subnet.

quoted multi line parameters are supported in scripts
   using full trim. type "sfk script" for details.

   although sfk wget can download a list of URLs, it is not
   a real webpage downloader/archiver, as this would require
   the conversion of html pages to adapt contained links.

HTTPS support
   SSL/TLS downloads are supported with SFK Plus.
   read more under:

chaining support
   output filename chaining is supported.
