This script allows you to easily automate the downloading of the latest version of any sourceforge project (as stored up to 31/12/2006) from any of sourceforge server by having it parse the web pages for the project and extract the latest release. It supports connecting through a proxy if either the environment variable HTTP_PROXY or http_proxy is defined. Also, downloads can be resumed like wget, in case the download is abruptly terminated. If .md5 checksums are available, they will also be downloaded and verified using ruby's digest/md5.
