Yes, I am just saying if it did it would make testing easier.

If something doesn't work, if it also doesn't even work with just
file:///, then one would know it wasn't a network problem, etc.

rsync too. In fact I can't think of one other remote copying / network
downloader that doesn't also work just the same if given both a local
origin and destination.

Just like one can use
$ scp fileA fileB
with no network needed.

Wget is not supposed to support file://.

You can easily use 'cp' or 'copy' (on Windows) for it.

BTW, curl has -s / --silent.
