   So, that's on an Alpha?

   I might be able to tell you something if I could see the actual
command instead of the mess I see in the mailing list archive, but if
you are actually specifying anything like "https://ABC.com/*";, then you
can expect trouble.  Wildcards like "*" don't work with the HTTP[S]
schemes, only with a scheme like FTP.  (When you're talking to an FTP
server, then you should be able to get a directory listing.  The same is
not true for an HTTP[S] server.)  Wget does have a "-r" ("--recursive")
option, which might do what you want (but that will depend on what you
want, and I don't know what that is).  Apostrophes also mean something
to DCL, so if you're really using those (as in "--http-user='xxx'"),
then you could be in still more trouble.  Have you tried using this wget
program to do anything simpler than this?  Did that work?

   Send some plain-text e-mail showing the actual wget command to the
address below (more or less), and I'll see what I can do.  Also:

      show symbol wget
      wget "-V"

   And, of course, with a host specification like "abc.com", I can't do
any testing, so you might also look into the "-d" ("--debug") option if
you want to see what the program is actually doing.
