you don't need --filter for that. you can simply use -A.
I predict that the vast majority of bug reports and support requests will be
for users who are trying a glob rather than a regular expression.
i you might be right about this. but i think your point of view is
somewhat flawed. hrvoje and i designed --filter to extend current wget
filtering capabilities, not to replace them. in this sense, --filter
should be used only when regex filtering capabilities are needed. if
not, -A/R & company are just fine.
