i have a text file that contains 10,000 url's with a unique number i want to save the file as. Each line has a 10 character code, then the URL of the image to retrieve. How can I make the input file use the first 10 characters as the wget filename?
this is an example of the input file: input.txt

wget -i input.txt would get the file but not with the preceding unique number.

If there is a better way to write out the input file, say with the URL first, then I can do that too, but I will never know the length of the first field. Right now the first 10 characters will always be what I want to save the wget image as.
Edit This is being done in a windows environment.
