Automatically shut down computer after downloading files - Linux command

Published on Jan 22, 2016 & tagged in Linux, Linux Commands

To download files, we can simply use wget command.

Also to shut down computer we can use halt command.

Now to automatically shut down our computer after downloading the files we can use combination of both.

wget UrlOfTheFileYouWantToDownload && sudo halt

The above commands will only shut down the computer if wget returns successfully.

wget UrlOfTheFileYouWantToDownload ; sudo halt

This command will run halt whether wget returns successfully or fails.
