    Extract Images for Use in Database

    i run an ecommerce site based on Oscommerce. I have a file of product images
    that are zipped and i usually upload this file to a specific spot on my host and I have a program that unzips it. The problem is now that the images have all changed and i need to go out to my suppliers site and get them. But these only come in the datafeed. So basically all i have is a link to each product. What I need is all the files downloaded into a zip file and named correctly. I really don't want to have to goto each image individually and download....there are
    over 2000 products. Is there any way to do this automatically?

    HELP!

    Hi, your question is for PHP forum, i.e DBMS cannot help you much with file downloads and naming, you should use PHP or other server-side script instead
