How can we download a file and give it a new name?

wget -O newfilename URL

How can we resume a large download?

We can restart a download which got stopped in the middle using wget -c option:

wget -c http://www.openss7.org/repos/tarballs/strx25-

This is very helpful when you have initiated a very big file download which got interrupted in the middle. Instead of starting the whole download again, you can start the download from where it got interrupted using option -c

Note: If a download is stopped in middle, when you restart the download again without the option -c, wget will append .1 to the filename automatically as a file with the previous name already exist. If a file with .1 already exist, it will download the file with .2 at the end.
