 Yeah, you're both right.  While we're at it, why don't we just round off the
 value of pi to be 3.0.  Those pesky trailing decimals are just an accident

.sorry for my stupid interferrence - don't blame it on history, blame it
on Intel's first pentium!

 I'm trying to download a robots.txt protexted directory and I'm having the

 the following :message (translated from french):
 Destroyed file because it must be rejected

 That message has nothing to do with robots.txt, it means that you have
 rejected the file using the `-R' or equivalent option.

Here you go again with this IMHO stupid implemented option.
I'm using it too but on some suffixes it acts after downloading by deleting
the already downloaded file and on other suffixes it works in advance.

I wonder why it not always rejects predefined files/suffixes in advance.
I doesn't make much sense to download them and then delete them.

But I'm only using version 1.8.2 maybe it has been changed in more recent
versions by now.

Re: wget can't get the following site

2004-01-09 Thread patrick robinson
Hello David,


 Because the URL has special characters in it, surround it in double quotes:
 wget
 http://quicktake.morningstar.com/Stock/Income10.asp?Country=USASymbol=JNJ;
 stocktab=finance

Ehm, well yes. Maybe I also should had mentioned that.

Downloading mostly should work if surrounding the url in double quotes.
Anyway you might meet a site every now and then which is still tricky to get.

wget syntax for extension reject

2003-10-17 Thread Patrick Robinson
Hello,


would someone be so kind to tell me the exact syntax to tell wget which
extensions it should reject, e.g. mp3 or mpg
Somehow I can't figure it out by trying and by the manpage.

Thanks
