DESCRIPTION
       The lwp-download program will save the file at url to a local file.If local path is not specified, then the current directory is assumed.
       If local path is a directory, then the basename of the file to save is picked up from the Content-Disposition header or the URL of the response.  If the file already exists, then lwp-download will prompt before it overwrites and will fail if its standard input is not a terminal.  This form of invocation will also fail is no acceptable filename can be derived from the sources mentioned above.


Example:
