I tried out on my Mac, jot to generate sequence ( 0,25,50,..), you can use 'seq' if it is linux to generate numbers, need curl installed on the machine, then it rocks. @Satya

And now we all hammer the tar out of the API. :)

It's really inconsiderate to hammer a site as quickly as you can; please don't do that. I suggest inserting "sleep 15; "

curl can do this all by itself: curl -O http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/browse/sort-by-votes/plaintext/[0-2400:25] Afterwards, simply cat all the files! No jot, no seq.

Create a temp directory to hold all the files downloaded. Then use "curl -O Then run this in the same directory to concatenate all the files into one single text file: "ls -1 | sort -n | while read mork ; do cat $mork >> commandlinefu.txt ; ls -ald $mork; done" The "ls" command is just to give you something to look at while this runs...
