The second command hangs forever. I am not sure what is wrong with it.
My understanding is that if I set connect-timeout short enough, wget
should fail. Could anybody let me know how to get this behavior? (See
the curl output below as a reference.)

$ time wget -qO- http://httpbin.org/get
  "args": {},
  "headers": {
    "Accept": "*/*",
    "Accept-Encoding": "identity",
    "Connection": "close",
    "Host": "httpbin.org",
    "User-Agent": "Wget/1.19.5 (darwin17.7.0)"
  "origin": "",
  "url": "http://httpbin.org/get";

real    0m0.237s
user    0m0.005s
sys    0m0.006s
$ wget --connect-timeout .0001 -qO- http://httpbin.org/get
$ curl --connect-timeout .1 http://httpbin.org/get
curl: (28) Connection timed out after 100 milliseconds
