    Do you plan to do future enhancements to nget ?
    What about speed ? Wouldn't it be possible to download faster ? And what about multiple slot downloads ?
    I'm sorry not to be able to help you with this, but I'm not a C programer. I'm only able to use your binary in my AppleScripts :)

      One more thing, instead of using the maxheader param, here is my suggestion :
      When you start a nget -g group -r keyword session, instead of getting all the articles or the max number defined in .ngetrc, nget could start downloading from the most recent articles to the oldest and stop as soon as it gets all the articles matching the keyword.

      Take a look at the "-x" option. It can only work if the server supports it, but many do.
