Bash Download Manager (using wget) and progress bar

Hi All,

I'm wrote a download manager script in bash using wget (my 1st bash script ever...).

The script works and does what it is supposed to do, so now I'm working on the UI (if we can call it this way).

So I'm stuck now trying to figure out a way to disable the wget output (connection info etc) but still be able to see a progress bar.

so this is what the output looks like while downloading:

--09:30:42--  hxxp://
           => `/home/rastacre/Downloads/DSCF0599.JPG'
Connecting to||:80... connected.

and here's what I would like to see:

19% [======>                              ] 614,424      173.62K/s    ETA 00:14
or something similar anyway...

Any ideas?

thanks in advance
