Question Simple question on wget


I'm trying to download a site but I only want to download the files named 'forms'.

There are a bunch of forms I need to download and they are all in sub-directories; such as:

/documents/forms/0001/forms
/documents/forms/0002/forms
/documents/forms/0003/forms
/documents/forms/0004/forms

There are other files in the directories but I want to ignore them and I want to keep the directory structure. Any suggestions?

Code:
wget -r -Aforms -erobots=off http://mysite.com/documents/forms/

This looks like you might be able to put grep in there, maybe a wildcard, ummmm

Code:
wget -c http://www.mysite.com/documents/forms/0001/forms*
Maybe?

That didn't work either.

Code:
root@siduxbox:/var/log/site# wget -c http://mysite.com/forms/00001/*/forms*
Warning: wildcards not supported in HTTP.
--00:24:34--  http://mysite.com/forms/00001/*/forms*
           => `forms*'

Any suggestions on how to download the files when they have no extension?
