Does anyone know the ftp.sec.gov location/file that has the list of all historical xbrl filings?

similar to this this, but instead a list of the xml files.

haven't been able to find on the website, but i could just be an idiot.

A few years ago I setup a Linux box to wget every file on EDGAR with a bash script. It took 3 days on a 100Mbs pipe but it was a shitty sequential script.

IIRC I think there are some index files (as the file names are [deliberatley] nonsensical). To answer your question I can't recall how I found them but it wasn't hard. I think I started with the search function in EDGAR looked at results then used Google search instructions for the index files.
