Description Roozbeh Pournader 2004-10-13 14:12:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
manual page for wget mentions a non-existing option "--no-cache". 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:
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
