as I am new to this, maybe someone can help even thought it is slightly

My BBC WGET Script 27/02/2004 V1.00
wget -U'For Linux VDR from Germany (brian_dorling@xxxxxxxxxxx)'

--13:30:57--  http://linux/
           =3D> `'bleb-xmltv.bz2''

My WGET script fails as shown above. But just issuing the command in a
shell works OK as shown below:

vdrpc:/usr/local/src/XMLTV # wget -U'For Linux VDR from Germany
(brian_dorling@xxxxxxxxxxx)' -O'bleb-xmltv.bz2'
           =3D> `bleb-xmltv.bz2'
Resolving bleb.org... done.
Connecting to bleb.org[]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [application/x-bzip]

    [   <=3D>

] 19,114        37.94K/s

13:30:24 (37.94 KB/s) - `bleb-xmltv.bz2' saved [19114]

Has anyone any ideas what is wrong? Obviously its staring to parse the -U
parameters as a URL, but why?
