	I'm trying to wget some very specific files off a web page, but
some of the paths are relative paths (e.g. ../path/to/file) rather than
abosolute (e.g. http://direct/path/to/file ). Obviously, when wget gets
to that part, it craps out... 
	 
	I am a little unsure on what you are trying to do...are you
mirroring a certain section of a website, and the relative paths are
causing problems? that would be pretty strange, because I am pretty sure
that i have done that before and not had any problems (just using wget
-m http://hostname/path/I/care/about/file.html).
	 
	or do you have a list of URL's you are trying to grab (say in a
file or something), that only have the relative paths? something like
this:
	  http://direct/path/to/file1
	  http://direct/path/to/file2
	  http://direct/path/to/file3
	  http://direct/path/to/file4
	  ../../file5
	  ../../file6
	 
	 
	if possible, it would be great if you could show the exact
command line that you are using, along with the exact error message.
	 
	Is there a switch in wget (in CentOS 5 - latest wget package)
that lets me maintain this session?  I tried some of the options here (
http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/html_node/HTTP-Options.html
<http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/html_node/HTTP-Options.html> ),
but it's not working, and I'm hoping someone here might point me in the
right direction.
