web downloads from command line

Is there a way to automate dowloads of html/jpeg/tgz files from the web using unix command line rather than a browser?

I'm talking about ordinary web sites, without ftp access, where to download something you would usually right-click in a browser, then save-to-disk.. etc

but can that be done without a browser, so that I can get lots of tgz files from a remote website like

>download http://www.tgz.com/a.tgz b.tgz c.tgz etc

provided I know all the names of the files in advance?

if so, please tell me how....

Have a look at the following site:
