Hello,

http://bugs.debian.org/479589

--8<--
Subject: wget: Doesn't understand file:/// URLs

This is bugging me for several reasons:

1) If starting a recursive download, I may have a local page giving
the URLs to download, rather than a remote one

2) For use in scripts, sometimes local files may be desired

Note that this one can be solved with the use of --force-html
- --input-file=<...>

Well, halfway. It inreacts strangely with -r and -l, I have found.

so reporting this as wishlist/feature request to support file:// URLs
