PostPosted: Fri 17 May 2013, 13:37    Post_subject:  wget problem in script (Solved)  

Is it possible to use wget to get a dynamically generated page? I'm trying to get something like this:

wget --output-document=mydoc.txt http://www.example.com/test.aspx?id=1&name=fred

The command works and saves the content to a file as I wanted but wget just doesn't terminate (even when I try this from the command line rather than in a script). I suspect it's the ? and & characters that are causing the problem, if so is it possible to 'escape' these.

Pre-post edit: I just put the url in quotes and it works properly. Doh!

Leaving the post here as it might help someone else who is as thick as me!
