Submitted by: Johnny Sim-Bravenboer



Download List Generator is a K-Meleon addon-program that can create an incremental download list and save this list to a file. The created download list file then can be imported into most popular download managers.

The program is useful when wanting to download a large number of files from a website but not all links to the files are being displayed on the website, instead only the first and last link are being displayed. This program will create the missing links for you.

Since the program can also be used from the command line, it is possible so "send" an URL to the program from K-Meleon.

You can download the Download List Generator (Windows 2K/XP .NET v1.1) here.

You can download the Download List Generator (Windows 9x) here.

Special note on program versions:

Please note that the Win 9x version will run in all versions of Windows.
(The one for Win 2K/XP just looks a little nicer)

Special note for downloading any of these programs:

Changed host for the files, also download managers are now supported :-)


06-27-05 DLG v1.0 :

  • Small bug fix when typing an URL in the "Enter Original URL"-textbox. (Program would not properly update the preview and checkmark when typing or removing numbers).
  • Added macro for the image right-click menu.

06-20-05 DLG v1.1:

  • Moved the progress bar from the progress dialog to status bar.

06-16-05 DLG v1.2:

  • Both Download List Generator programs have been updated to support drag and drop operations, so now it is possible to drag selected text to the program and drop it inside the 'Enter Original URL' text-box. (for example a URL displayed in the Address Bar)

08-26-05 DLG v1.3:

  • Both Download List Generator programs now read any text from the Windows clipboard on start-up and place this text in the 'Enter Original URL' text-box if no text is passed to the program by command line.
  • Because of this new start-up behaviour, a 'Clear All' button has been added.

09-19-05 DLG v1.4:

  • Both Download List Generator programs now save the window position and window state automatically on closing, and restore these again at start-up.
