Description of problem:
manual page for wget mentions a non-existing option "--no-cache".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter "man wget" in a terminal.
2. search for "no-cache". read the description. quit man.
3. enter "wget --no-cache http://redhat.com"
Actual Results: You get the following error message:
wget: unrecognized option `--no-cache'
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...
Try `wget --help' for more options.
Expected Results: it should have either worked as mentioned in the
manual file, or the manual should not have listed --no-cache.
the correct option, which can be found using "wget --help", is
"--cache=off" or "-C off".
there was an old copy of the manpage in the rpm, this parameter
doesn't exist anymore. fixed in wget-1.9.1-21
