I wish to use tor on the command line in conjunction with wget, ssh, etc.

The documentation that I have seen regarding this recommends installing the tor package (apt install tor / yum install tor) and then running the relevant program prepended with usewithtor eg.

usewithtor wget example.com/index.html

Having tried this on both debian and rhel distros I get

usewithtor: command not found..

Has this commmand now been deprecated?

Any help / guidance appreciated.

usewithtor is deprecated, you want to use torsocks in it's place.

Previously there were various incarnations, the commands were kept for backwards compatibility but torsocks is what torify/usewithtor have just been a wrapper around for some time now.
