wget is creating file for each execution
 
Hi,

I am calling a service using http post through wget, the command is successfully executing but for each execution its creating a file and saving variable names n data n it.

I want to execute this command without creation of a file.

Would anyone suggest me what needs to be done in this regard.


My command:


wget --post-data 'var1=99&var2=200' \http://xyz.example.com:5555/invoke/Samples:httpInvoke


For every execution, its creating the files with names:

Samples:httpInvoke1
Samples:httpInvoke2
Samples:httpInvoke3
.
.
.
.
Result of execution:
wget --post-data 'var1=99&var2=200' \http://xyz.example.com:5555/invoke/Samples:httpInvoke
--15:56:45-- http://xyz.example.com:5555/invoke/Samples:httpInvoke

Read the man page on wget. You can try to redirect the output to /dev/null with the -o option, or to a single-file with an append, so you'll get just ONE file for all the posts.
