SILK is a utility allowing an automatic download of a set of files, whose names contain a numerical sequence. Examples of such files include image or movie files arranged in galleries.
SILK allows the user to download tens, even hundreds of files with just a few mouse clicks. Previews of files are displayed as the download progresses. The program may even be used to probe web sites for files which are not displayed in galleries.
SILK can download a sequence of files of a recognized MIME type without any user intervention. If an unknown MIME type is encountered, the user is asked if the file should be downloaded. A set of recognized MIME types can be edited by the user.
