Hi,

I am trying to automate the downloading of audibooks from podiobooks.com

Instead of clicking each link to download each mp3 chapter I am trying 
delvelop a sript that can be cron'ed.

Now the problem:

Example link to mp3 file: www.podiobooks.com/blahblahblah-03.mp3

using the following:

*wget --convert-links  -r -l1 -H -t1 -nd -N -np -A.mp3  -erobots=off 
http://podiobooks.com/blahblah *

to download the file results in the following being downloaded:

*www.podiobooks.com/blahblahblah-03.mp3?moreblahblahblah
*
this file is then deleted due to the accept list not recognising it.

Is there any way for wget to ignore or delete everything after the ? to 
the end of the line

Michael
