I downloaded the wget utility from the MinGW download site and unzipped it into my MinGW folder. I expected a wget binary, but could not find one. Is the wget utility source only? If so, I would suggest one of the following courses of action:

1)      Provide a binary build of wget in addition to the source

2)      Label the filename with “src” to indicate it is source only

I would prefer the first option, but if no binaries are provided the file should at least be indicated as being source only. Also, if it is source only, instructions should be provided in an obvious location that explain where to unzip the files and how to build the binary.

 

Thanks,

Steve
