How to download files without using desktop?

How can I download files (ie: tcpdump, libpcap etc) without using a browser?  Can wget do this?  Or is there another way to do this. I'm assuming you need the exact link for the file you want to grab?
Thanks

Hi dissolved,

You can indeed use "wget" to retrieve a file for you.  You will need to know the exact URL that you want to retrieve.

The simplest form of this is:
wget http://www.webserver.com/subdirectory/fileiwant.zip

Info on the command parameters can be found at :http://www.linuxforum.com/shell/wget/129-10.php

I hope that this helps.
