Please provide more detail. Do you mean downloading across a local network,
or from the Internet? What time intervals? What file size? What protocol?
By "automised," do you mean automated?

Chances are the answer is that this can be done easily. But without details,
any reply is too vague to be useful.

Hi!

I'm trying to write a ruby script that tests a "print to pdf"
functionality...so, I have a list on my screen, and by pressing the
Print button, a PDF is generated...a file download window
appears...could I click Save on that window from Ruby?

Thanks

That seems more like a case for autoit
(http://www.hiddensoft.com/autoit3/downloads.php)
Eventually you can use autoit from ruby via autoitX dll and win32api or ruby/dl.

It should be a client browser functionality... display -pdf then save or print it

something like this plugin ? http://www.schubert-it.com/
I installed it into my Safari browser (yes I'm Mac..) and that's it...
look if any similar plugin exist for other browsers...
