Follow-up Comment #2, bug #45732 (project wget):

Sorry, I think I was not clear in my request.

I am not suggesting that --ask-password should be fully documented in section
2.1, just that there should be a cross-reference from section 2.1 to section
2.5. The reason is that currently section 2.1 gives the impression that the
only options are either to supply the password in the URL, or to use 'wget -i
-' and supply the password to stdin. In fact, this latter trick is not needed
(at least, for interactive use); instead, --ask-password can be used.

Perhaps it would be good to mention --ask-password instead of the 'wget -i -'
trick, for example?
