wget --directory-prefix=prefix and --output-document=file does not work togeter
here is my problem:
when I execute:
wget --directory-prefix=prefix google.com
it works as it is supposed to work and saves the file to the path given in the prefix..
but when I try to execute smthng like that:
wget --directory-prefix=prefix --output-document=file google.com
it generates the file in the folder that I am currently in.. In does not create the file on the prefix I defined. so --directory-prefix=prefix becomes useless..
Any help appreciated.

hi, I had your same problem, I tried:
wget 'url' -O - > /save/location/filename
and it worked it's complicated but at least it works.

Welcome to Linux Forums. Thanks for posting a quite elegant solution to the problem but as this thread is well over two years old, I'm going ahead and closing it.
