RE: Using curl to get files matching a pattern

Hi
I need to download a zip file from a page like the following :
<form method="post" action="testfile.zip" >
    <input type="submit" name="download" value="OK"/>
</form>

I want to use curl to click on download button and download the file (The name of the zip file is not known and changes everyday, that's why I need to do something like this)
I tried the following, but curl just returns the page html, and not the zip file

curl -O -k -d "download=OK" "http://localhost:8080/test/download.jsp"

Thanks
