I am trying to download a text file generated via an asp script that takes multiple parameters in the url.  I want to setup a cronjob that will download the resulting file every hour.  I tried using wget to grab the file but that does not seem to work.  I'm guessing I need to using something like lynx to tell it to grab the resulting file.  If that is not an option I also have access to php via the command line.  Any suggestions?

Please define "does not seem to work".

wget or curl are quite capable of doing what you need.
