NAME ^

App::ManiacDownloader - a maniac download accelerator.

VERSION ^

version 0.0.10

SYNOPSIS ^

    # To download with 10 segments
    $ mdown -k=10 http://path.to.my.url.tld/path-to-file.txt

DESCRIPTION ^

This is Maniac Downloader, a maniac download accelerator. It is currently very incomplete (see the TODO.txt file), but is still somewhat usable. Maniac Downloader is being written out of necessity out of proving to improve the download speed of files here (which I suspect is caused by a misconfiguration of my ISP's networking), and as a result, may prove of use elsewhere.

The Secret Sauce

The main improvement of Maniac Downloader over other downloader managers is that if a segment of the downloaded file finishes, then it splits the largest remaining segment, and starts another new download, so the slowest downloads won't delay the completion time by much.

METHODS ^

$self->run({argv => [@ARGV]})

Run the application with @ARGV .

“Man Down”

“Man Down” is a song by Rihanna, which happens to have the same initialism as Maniac Downloader, and which I happen to like, so feel free to check it out:
