posted at least once today:
gene@coyote:~/src/build$ cd .. && wget -O opencv.zip https://github.com/opencv/opencv/archive/master.zip
Cannot specify both -k or --convert-file-only and -O if multiple URLs are given, or in combination
with -p or -r. See the manual for details.
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...
But the man page says it's legal.
