No, sorry. What I'm trying to say is that when you take a look on the
wget manual at gnu.org of '-N' mode you find "Turn on time-stamping. See
Time-Stamping
<https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html#Time_002dStamping>,
for details". The link there is the one I sent on my first e-mail, and
there says it compares the sizes of the two files without mentioning
--no-if-modified-since. Something like the text you sent:

Would be nice on the manual, but it's not there (at least on the online
version I don't see it). Instead, it tells you how it worked on previous
versions, but it's the 1.20 Manual.

I hope the explanation it's better now
