I have a perl script which contains a call to wget as follows:
system ('wget -O ~/tmp/video.jpg http://user:firstname.lastname@example.org:80/cgi-bin/video.jpg
-o /dev/null 2>&1');
This has been working fine for the last 5 months until the recent wget update a few days ago. I've been trying to figure out how to change the call to fix the problem but... ahhhhh
Anyone have any ideas? I've tried using --http-user= and http-password= but that didn't seem to work either.
The output from wget at the cl says 401 unauthorized and the image file in tmp (it does create the video.jpg file in tmp) is an empty file...
This seems to be a bug in the new wget as far as I can tell. There's nothing wrong with my syntax (again, as far as I can tell...).
thanks in advance for any help.
