    I’ve got an online textbook for one of my classes and I really want to make a PDF so I can read it easier on my iPad.

    It’s for a Holt textbook and they have actual images of each page, only viewable one at a time, and they’ve got no way to download a PDF or anything without having to go to their website every time. The images all have the same URL with the exception of the image file name which are .../hx6ne0005.jpg
    and I need say 0001 all the way through .../hx6ne0494.jpg all being the pages of the textbook in order.

    Is there anyway I can download all of these at once with a some sort of script? I simply can’t download the 500 pages one at a time.

    I’ve tried to use an application called DeepVacuum but I had no luck.

    Thanks if you can solve this problem :)

    Oh my god.

    I actually figured this one out myself.

    If you want to know here it is.

    All I did was use termianl to download as I’ve done before(so you can close your browser and continue downloading) but I just used brackets for the file names.
    Here’s my command:

    curl -O www.website.com/image[0005-0494].jpg
