    please is there anyone skilled enough to help me with this?

    In Linux i have file which have very long line containing multiple times following phrasse:

    <a href='/download/392931' class='download' .... some text here ... <a href='/download/366' class='download' ... another text ... <a href='/download/2' class='download'

    I need to extract only numbers that are after "/download/" phrasse or extract "/download/numberhere" phrasses only. The line contains other numbers so i need somehow extract only numbers after "download/"
    So the output should be numbers one per line or /download/numberhere one per line. :-S

    Maybe it can be done by somehow extracting string that is between two strings:
    <td class='download'> <a href='/download/392931' class='download'
    but the command would have to somehow do extraction multiple times per one line which makes it harder
