Are you sure that's what you want to do? Even if wget didn't silently
-r (as Mauro pointed out in his response to you), the options imply that
everything in the path should be written to file (presumably appended
after the other). (wget ignores -r in this case because the authors
such behavior doesn't make any sense.)
What are you trying to get wget to do?
Yeah, that's really what I'm trying to do... I just want to gauge
performance of a web server on a given network port...
I've found the pavuk utility fits the bill and has many more advanced
options, such as thread controlling, rate limiting, random delay between
downloads, a -dontstore option that does what I wanted with the -O
/dev/null and more, so I've started using that instead.
I just thought I'd ask on the list to see if the behavior I was observing
with wget was expected... I suppose it is. :o)
