    wget problems


    The problem I'm having is that wget is downloading the same stuff each time.

    I am running wget 1.10 using --timestamping and the target is an ftp site. It downloads the material correctly, sets the correct times locally (verified by /bin/ls), but I don't think it should be re-downloading it each time -- the remote stuff hasn't changed!

    Any ideas ? Does using no-verbose mess up anything?

    Okay, solved this one by replacing --timestamping with --no-clobber.
