Hi Jim,

Gee, if you are able to do that, I wonder why you top-post.

Anyway: I have wget 1.8.1 on (Debian) Linux, wget 1.8.2 on OpenBSD 3.5
and wget 1.8.2 on cygwin (XP-SP1), none knows "--post-data" so I also
had to resort to curl.

My (very simple) script looks like this:

nach="/work/BACK/m0n0_"`date +%Y%m%d`.xml

curl --data 'Submit=Download' \
http://username:secret@192.168.x.x/diag_backup.php >$nach
