Downloading multiple csv files from a website

I'd like to download data from the website
http://www.russell.com/Indexes/perfo..._values_US.asp. On
this web page, there are links to a number of .csv files, and I'd like
to download all of them automatically each day. The file names are not
visible on the page, but if I click on a link, a csv file opens in
Excel. I've searched this group and looked into urllib, but have not
found functions or code snippets that will allow me to download and
rename each file. Would someone kindly point me to appropriate
libraries/functions and/or code snippets that will get me started?

Thanks in advance

Our systems administrator suggested that I try wget, a GNU utility
that is designed to pick up data. It might prove to be the easiest way
to get the data I want, and I am going to try that first.

Thanks again.

Hi Guys, We know that we can use <input type=file ...> to upload one file per time to the server. My question is if there are some way to upload multiple files per time to the server. (Of course, we can use <input type=file ...> multiple times and then submit once. But this is not what I want, because we have to click "browse" button several times to select multiple files before submit in this way.) "Upload multiple files PER TIME", I...

I am having problem while downloading files from an apache server2.0.53 with php4.3.10.While downloading some files it generally stops after downloading some specific amount and then stops downloading with the error message: "the source file could not be read". And the error is not dependent on the size of the file, as I can download a file of 6MB but having problem with a file with 652KB. It always stops after 666880bytes. Thanks.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
