wget Question

I search google for "wget -O option" and "wget man command" and did not find what I'm looking for.....

Can you point me in the right direction (I'm not asking anyone to write it from me, I'm going to learn it this time)

first is '--help' as in 'command --help' this will help you out A LOT

if you're feeling lazy you can use -h or -? they will almost always work, and then there's 'info command' and 'man command'

is in this case you type wget --help and it tells you EVERYTHING about the command and that 'wget www.youtube.com/video -O filename.flv' will do what you want

man command is likeon unix/linux, where at a command prompt you type "man wget" to pull up the "manual" for the program. Not "wget man". That would try to pull a file called man.
