Automatic file download (HTTP protocol) from a predefined internet address: the Z-Cron command GETURL is intended for fetching HTML pages or scripts. For the scheduled download of files (ZIP files, images etc.) I recommend to use the Z-Cron command DOWNLOAD.

As a small example for the use of this command, we show how to download a picture of the Kudamm in Berlin (www.kurfuerstendamm.de) every 5 minutes:


Input mask command DOWNLOAD


As a target a valid file name must be given. In the file name the following variables can be used:


Dummy Function
$DATE Today's date (yyyymmdd)
$TIME Time (hhmm)
