I am using WGET to invoke a URL. My problem is that the URL is being invoked fine but its always creating a kinda log file every time the URL get invoked. Is there any flag to ignore the creation of these log files ?

 /usr/local/bin/wget -q

I have tried the flags -q and  -nv but its still creating the log files :(

    wget actually gets the contents of the URL that you supply and is storing it into the files abc.jsp abc.jsp1 ...

    If you don't want it to do this then try the --spider option

    wget --spider
