WebHit is a simple utility for hitting websites from the command line. This is useful when you need to invoke a server side script from the command line but don't care about the result of the script. It can optionally save the result of the request to a file. This way it can be used also as a primitive file downloader. It requires .Net framework 3.5 to run.
Usage of the program is straightforward, just type:
webhit -url http://example.comTo see a description of command line options, type: webhit /?
The program sets the exit code to 0 when the request was successful and to -1 when not. You can use this feature to determine success of the operation when calling WebHit from another program or batch script.
