    wget stuck


    I use wget to retrieve a webpage
    like the below
    but after "
    2012-10-30 14:37:42 (1.52 MB/s) - “search_result” saved [108588]"
    wget is stuck there, unless I enter "Enter" key
    then
    it will show
    [1]+ Done wget --timeout=1 -O search_result pig - YouTube

    I searched for the process wget but can't get the process_id
    it seems it has stopped but stuck
    how to deal with this?
    Code:
    ps -eaf|grep "wget"
    Code:
    [esolve@meliy temp]$ wget --timeout=1 -O search_result http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=pig&page=5 
    [1] 7194

    You need to quote the URL, otherwise the shell will evaluate it.
    The & is the reason why it sends wget in the background.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
