I am trying to crawl the internet starting at a certain website and get a list of URLs that were visited. This is what I have so far:

wget --spider -r --no-verbose -o out.txt <url>

The problem with this is that it creates a folder structure on the disk of the websites it visited. I don't want to download any files or create folders on disk. How can I achieve this?

Try the -nd or --no-directories option.

Maybe not exactly what you want, but the --delete-after option might work for you.

--delete-after does not delete the directory. – Dennis Feb 5 '13 at 18:30
