Archie offers access to files available from anonymous FTP sites. It is not used much, but it can still be found at educational sites in particular.

You use archie to search an FTP site for files or anything matching a string of text you type in.

archie -{switch} {string}

  -c   Case-sensitive substring search
  -r   Regular expression search
  -s   Case-insensitive substring match

   Location: /pub/physicsdept/binaries/usr.bin.nomirror
   FILE -rw-r--r--  28254  Nov 26  00:26  fisheye.tar.z

After you find the file, you can use an FTP, ssh or telnet program to download it.
