       Downloads files from your account.

       NOTE: If you want to download entire directories, use megacopy(1).


       --path <path>
           Local path to download to. If this path is a directory, files are placed into the
           directory. If this path doesn’t exist, and it’s parent directory does, the file will
           be downloaded to a specified file (this only works if you specify exactly one remote

           If <path> is -, remote file will be streamed to stdout.

           Disable download progress reporting. This is implied when streaming.

           Don’t resume downloads from partially dowloaded file. Default is to resume.

           Reload filesystem cache

       --limit-speed <speed>
           Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config
           file settings. 0 means no limit. When using ParallelTransfers > 1, upload speed limit
           is applied to each transfer individually.

       --proxy <proxy>
           Use proxy server to connect to This option overrides config file settings.
           More information can be found in libcurl documentation at
  Some acceptable values are:

           ·   none : Disable proxy if it was enabled in the config file.

           ·   socks5://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server

           ·   socks5h://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the

       --config <path>
           Load configuration from a file

           Disable loading .megarc

       --debug [<options>]
           Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable
           multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg.  --debug api,fs)

           Available options are:

           ·   http: Dump HTTP request/response details (can be used to debug connection/proxy

           ·   api: Dump API calls

           ·   fs: Dump filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)

           ·   cache: Dump cache contents

           ·   tman: Dump transfer manager events

           Show version information

           One or more remote files to download.

               $ megaget /Root/README
               $ ls


REMOTE FILESYSTEM filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are
       identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is
       not encrypted.

       Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg.

       NOTE: By the nature of storage, several files in the directory can have the same
       name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by
       appending dot and their node handle like this:


       You need to be aware of several special folders:

           Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.

           Trash directory where web client moves deleted files. This directory is not
           used by megatools when removing files.

           Not sure.

           Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to
           add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want
           to add.

           Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories
           contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the
