Hi Jacek,

I see someone raised a bug for this:
http://code.google.com/p/ndmitchell/issues/detail?id=434 - it's a very
reasonable idea, which I'll include in the next version. Then if you
have either wget or curl it will work.

Set up a shell alias so wget just calls curl? Install wget on OS X? If
neither of these is feasible let me know and I'll rush out a new
version of Hoogle.

Thanks, Neil
