    Question wget get past bad filenames?

    Hi all,
    I want to download some source code a friend is working on, but his website has some files and folders with a period in the file-name. like ./v1/ , ./v2/
    .068671
    wget seems to fail there. what should i do to get files marked as hidden?

    I do not understand. It seems to work fine for me. I created a file ".bla.txt" in my public directory, and it fetched fine with wget.
    Directory names can always be referred to as ./v1/ from the current directory, and would need to be converted to a complete path name for wget to work.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.
