Availability of wget in hpux

We are writing a shell script that gets some profile information from a hp-ux box and we would like to send it to a URL. We have written similar script for Linux and we had used wget to send the information to the URL. I did not find wget bundled in some of the hp-ux systems i had access to.

Although in one instance i found it in /usr/local/bin, it threw linker problems for some shared object files (.so files)

My questions:
1) Is wget bundled in hp-ux boxes?
2) Is there an alternative to use to connect to a website using a command line tool (in batch mode)?

Hi Vishwanath,

It's a GNU product.
You should be able to get it here:

http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html
http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/

Rgds,
Jeff

there are lot of dependencies, can you give the error as which library file it is looking for?

Re: Availability of wget in hpux

gnu.org is pretty good about highlighting dependencies & will point out any & all other pkgs that must come down for a proper wget install.

HTH,
Jeff

It's also available at software.hp.com.
