    Unhappy wget --directory-prefix=prefix and --output-document=file does not work togeter

    here is my problem:
    when I execute:

    wget --directory-prefix=prefix

    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

    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.
    - this is my first post by the way

    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.

    Hi tezma90,

    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.
