How to use flyingpdf pdfpageexport to automatically save a page to a PDF file

Is there a URL I can use to have flyingpdf to automatically save a page to pdf, without having to answer "where" (i.e., put the save to path on the URL), i.e.:

https://<confluence URL>/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=12345?saveFile=<pathtofile>

Id like to be able to do this via Curl or the Rest API without exporting the entire space.

Add an entry to your favorite scheduler (cron) to use wget with the URL for the pdf. Specify -o option for wget to store it in the required location. If needed dynamically construct the file name also as per date/time.

I need to be able to construct the URL for the pdf. If I do this on the browser web address:

https://<confluence URL>/spaces/flyingpdf/pdfpageexport.action?pageId=12345

I get the window's "save file" dialog.
