Computer Tips - How to I disable wget's progress bar but still get some output.

Date: 2015jun30 OS: Linux Product: wget Q. How to I disable wget's progress bar but still get some output. (ie not totally silent) A. Use the -nv option:
wget -nv http://example.com
The man page says:
-nv --no-verbose Turn off verbose without being completely quiet (use -q for that), which means that error messages and basic information still get printed.
