Default wget'ing files with relative paths

How?

the paths are relative paths (e.g. ../path/to/file) rather than

What are those options?

but it's not working, and I'm hoping someone here might point me in the
right direction.


You really need to provide more information before you can reasonably
hope someone to assist you.

How?


Basically, I'd like to run this command:

wget (options to grab all the mp3s)
http://www.2600.com/offthehook/1988/1088.html

e.g.

wget -r -l3 -H -t1 -nd -N -np -A .mp3 -erobots=off
http://www.2600.com/offthehook/1988/1088.html
<http://www.2600.com/offthehook/1988/1088.html>

It's not working like it works on other websites (e.g. democracynow.org
<http://democracynow.org>), and I suspect it's because when you look
through the source code (which I do with "lynx -source"), I see that the
mp3 files are ../../path/to/file.mp3


It is not because of the relative links. It is because of the -np flag.
Remove it and try. Also, avoid "-H" and "-e robots=off" unless you
really need them.


HTH,
