wget scheduler


Is there any scheduling option in wget (timer/scheduler with on/off facility) ?

How about simply setting up the command in cron (or one of the cron substitues)? I think that's what most people would do with a cli program like wget.

Nice idea!
The problem is I am not well versed with CLI and I have not tried cron so far.
Now I will give it a try.
Thanks.
