I recently installed wget on my Mac using the instructions listed here: http://osxdaily.com/2012/05/22/install-wget-mac-os-x/ and lorcan's instructions here: How do I get "wget" for Snow Leopard?

However, I realized that I installed an outdated version of wget.

Is there an easy way to uninstall wget from my system?

  • If you install wget with Homebrew, it should replace the old version. – sudo Jun 29 '14 at 0:26

It depends on how you installed wget in the first place.

  • If you installed directly from source, run sudo rm /usr/local/bin/wget
  • If you installed via Homebrew, run brew uninstall wget (or just use brew upgrade wget to install the most recent version)
