The firehose_get download tool is a command-lined wrapper around the wget utility.  If you do not have wget installed on your machine (you will know, because firehose_get will fail),here are some links that should help.  Of course, Googling "pre-built wget binary" for your system (Mac / Windows) should get you essentially the same result.

WARNING: I make these available as a convenience, and have briefly tested the Mac versions.  But I have not verified the integrity of these tools, nor can I promise that they will function on every machine.  It is preferable for you to either Google your own version or download the source and build from scratch.




Ideally I would like firehose_get to also support curl, which performs a similar function as wget, and may already be installed on your machines.
