Yeah I did. Given the null result there's no ~/.wgetrc. NP.

unSpawn - it sure seems that I do have a problem with handles. Sorry about that. But then Shawn is quite a nice name - It's got to be better than "Dead Dog"

Now if that name problem happens again, I know what to look for, thanks to you.
But I would still like to know : How to make sure that "wget" saves the file with a proper name ALWAYS and what must be the cause behind "wget"'s improper behavior in this particular case ?

I have got something informative here:

Check out this link:
http://www.electrictoolbox.com/wget-...rent-filename/

That link clearly states that if the url which we are using for downloading has got something like this at the end :
wget -c http://www.example.com/somepage.html?foo=bar

Then wget will save the file with the name: "somepage.html?foo=bar"

as it did in our case where we used a mirror at the end :

wget -c http://sourceforge.net/projects/gpar....iso/download?use_mirror=aarnet

That's why the gparted got saved as : "download?use_mirror=aarnet"

To save the software with some other name one just has to use the option -O desiredName

Example:
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> mkdir test
anisha@linux-uitj:~> cd test
anisha@linux-uitj:~/test> ls
anisha@linux-uitj:~/test> wget -c -O dummyName http://www.google.co.in/
--2010-10-19 10:04:00--  http://www.google.co.in/
Resolving www.google.co.in... 173.194.32.104
Connecting to www.google.co.in|173.194.32.104|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/html]
Saving to: `dummyName'

    [  <=>                                                           ] 9,563       29.0K/s   in 0.3s

2010-10-19 10:04:01 (29.0 KB/s) - `dummyName' saved [9563]

anisha@linux-uitj:~/test> ls
dummyName

Which means to me that if I HAD LOOKED at the code ending when I had
downloaded that file it would have told me under what name it had been
saved.
I don't follow all of this, but I think I get the idea.

It's early where you are but its sleep time here. So I'll say sleep well and
prosper

Kindest regards Des

What part of that post have you not understood ?

I have written it in a layman's language so that it is easy for you to understand and thus use it accordingly.

Read the bolded and colored text twice, then speak up what you have not understood.

wget is a foolproof tool and can come very handy if you know how to use it properly.

Yes! you are quite right, I just haven't looked at it properly. The reason being I had thought the post was intentioned as a part question yet fact for unSpawn Therefore I will now look at it more closely and if I have specific questions I will address them to this thread.

I think I understand your code now -

I've just noticed that my 1st post sat by itself for 4 weeks before you came across it - so actually it took 3 weeks to work through the problem not 7 weeks as I have stated in a previous post. You were right in renaming the thread and my comments about titles in another thread you helped out in - were totally incorrect. I hate being wrong, but what I hate even more is not admitting it when one is wrong :-/

I didn't write code anywhere.

What gets directly executed on the terminal is called a command.
Example:
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> ls -la
Code is something which we write (mostly in a text editor) and then compile it using some command.
Following is an example of a C code written in a file named helloo.c
Code:
#include <stdio.h>
int main ()
{
  int x = 10;
  return 0;
}
and to compile it I use a command named gcc:
Code:
anisha@linux-uitj:~> gcc helloo.c
If you call a command, code, repeatedly, people may not understand what you are talking about !

Like you said in the other post of yours that you have tried all codes I wrote for gparted...I couldn't make out which codes you were referring to, since I had not written any !

Later I realized that you were referring to website links as codes :-/

Point taken and understood: Not very bright I'm afraid, I've been known to get peoples names wrong as well

But I think I am following your command structure OK, and the reasons for it. I'll lay it out line line for you shortly, so you can make sure I have it right.

Why then do we encase it in a frame and label the frame with the word "code" as above ?

Because the owner of the site has perhaps decided that CODE tags are sufficient to enclose codes, commands, outputs, warning/error messages etc. and left it to the users to refer to the same using some discretion on their own.

and I don't have any problems neither I am concerned with whichever way you choose to refer to things. I thought it was my duty to make you aware of LQ atticates that's why I wrote the above post. I think this thread has reached its end now.

OUCH! I had already answered that I understood what you meant and that I would in future use the word commands This was only an afterthought question, which you have explained well. It was good that you felt duty bound--- The End of this thread!
