[Bug-wget] Bug inside the manpage

Hi wget bug-hunter!

I've got a question because of an inaccuracy (maybe a bug) in the manpage für "wget". For the parameter "-t / -- tries" it sais:

   /"Set number of retries to number.  Specify 0 or inf for infinite
   retrying. [...]"/

This would mean that you cannot unset retrying for wget.

wget http://something.xyz         <-------- default: 20 retries if necessary
wget -t 0 http://something.xyz <--------- infinite retrying
wget -t 1 http://something.xyz <--------- 1 REtry, so i case of a problem, we get the first try + 1 retry = 2 tries.

Is that correct or is that a typo in the manpage so that it should be:

   /"Set number of tries to number.  Specify 0 or inf for infinite
   retrying. [...]"/

Regards, Hauke
