    Wget, shell script help

    I am trying to download a url using wget, and parse the data from the downloaded html. So, first I simply tried to download the url(with some url parameters, ex: www.abc.com/goodone.aspx?dateday=1&datemonth=2)

    Problem1: Wget downloaded the file and still waiting for something. Wget wont return to shell prompt.

    Problem2: The html in downloaded one and the html in browser are not same. I mean some part is missing in downloaded version. I think that missing part supposed to generate using the variables I am passing in URL.

    how do I fix above two things? If I can fix these two, then I have to write some shell logics to parse data from html.

    thanks in advance.

    Never mind, putting the double quotes around the url seems working.
