On most Linux systems 

locate wget 

will find it and 

man wget 

will tell you more than you ever need to know.

Wget is just a non-interactive version of ftp, comparable to the old uucp
method of unattended file transfer. 

I just used it to download all the Context manuals. It took two steps.
First I downloaded a list of manuals and second I referenced that list
and downloaded the manuals themselves.
