Flashgot.exe command line arguments

Post by pouriap19 » Wed Apr 29, 2020 6:51 pm

Hi
I'm developing an addon in the hopes that it would be able to mimic FlashGot's functionality. At least to some extent.
After looking under the hood of FlashGot a little bit I realized there's a handy flashgot.exe file that appears to be in charge of communicating with different download managers.
I wanted to know if it is possible to use this single program to download a file with all the supported download managers. I'm thinking something like:

Code: Select all

flashgot.exe --url "https://website.com/download.zip" --manager someDownloadManager --headers abc --cookies xyz
Is this possible? And if yes, where can I find the command line arguments that the program accepts?
