Note: set proxy for wget

wget -Y -e "http_proxy=host:port" url

"How to set proxy for wget?" I've been asked this question for many times, but it seems didn't appears in the "-h" output nor man page, so I always forgot it.

That's why I'm making a note here :)

Addons: The same as ftp_proxy. And "--no-proxy" can be used if you specify http_proxy in env.

Well, this way can keep the other of the system untouched (also "http_proxy=... wget --proxy=on url" can do it, but it's bash only).
I used to wrote a script to verify proxies, it wget a webpage, and wget with the same webpage with proxy, and diff them. It's suitable for such case.
