What is the shell command to do this action.

"Copy the file https://improvement.abc.com/s3hkfiles/snbget.cgi/szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo to /etc/yujhkm.rmepos.d"

  • wget https://improvement.abc.com/s3hkfiles/snbget.cgi/szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo -P /etc/yujhkm.rmepos.d if the latter is a directory. – ridgy Feb 27 '17 at 14:05

You're looking for wget. Try this:

$ wget https://improvement.abc.com/s3hkfiles/snbget.cgi/szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo

Curl and sudo is one possibility:

curl -O 'https://improvement.abc.com/s3hkfiles/snbget.cgi/szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo'
sudo cp -i -v szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo /etc/yujhkm.rmepos.d

Another way is to download it directly, but downloading anything as root is not recommended at all, because of possible security implications:

sudo curl -o /etc/yujhkm.rmepos.d 'https://improvement.abc.com/s3hkfiles/snbget.cgi/szubjkrgotc-xpra.repo'
