(OP)
Good Day,

On this Sun Solaris server, neither curl nor wget seem to work -

CODE

(ddril00)>uname -a
SunOS slsudv48 5.9 Generic_122300-47 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
[slsudv48]/export/home/ddril00/dan
(ddril00)>curl
sh: curl: not found
[slsudv48]/export/home/ddril00/dan
(ddril00)>wget
sh: wget: not found
[slsudv48]/export/home/ddril00/dan

Any ideas, by any chance?

Regards,
Dan

RE: curl or wget

They are either not installed, or not in your PATH.

Try the following...

CODE

pkginfo | egrep 'curl|wget'

RE: curl or wget

(OP)
Many thanks -

CODE

(ddril00)>pkginfo | egrep 'curl|wget'
system SUNWwgetr GNU wget - utility to retrieve files from the World Wide Web (root)
system SUNWwgetu wget - GNU wget

I guess the next step is the path. How can I find them out?

Regards,
Dan

RE: curl or wget

How to find
# find / -name wget -print

location is
/usr/sfw/bin/wget

RE: curl or wget

Beautiful thing – thank you.

Regards,
Dan
