wget question


Got love wget, instead of manually pointing and clicking to d/l stuff, you just use the command line.

My questions is, I've d/l mp3s from a website, and I only want the mp3s.

For some reason this isn't working. I though the -A was for all files, * for all files that have a .mp3 file format.

Now when I use the next command line

It of course will grab index.html files along with everything else because of the recursive option. I don't want to eat up all of the bandwidth on these sites...so how do I just grab all of the .mp3s from one directory?

thanks
