try
wget -O - ...

excerpt from man wget:
       -O file
       --output-document=file
           The documents will not be written to the appropriate
           files, but all will be concatenated together and written to file.  If file already exists, it will be over-
           written.  If the file is -, the documents will be
           written to standard output.  Including this option
           automatically sets the number of tries to 1.

Ah. I'm actually using the Windoze port at the moment, and this is all i get in --help:

  -O   --output-document=FILE   write documents to FILE.

but the option

-O -

works nonetheless. Thanks
