[OCLUG-Tech] wget passphrase

I need to use 'wget' to do a secure file download. It works great at
the command line. Unfortunately wget asks for the PEM passphrase.
However this will eventually be part of an embedded application so the
passphrase prompt can't happen.

1. Can you create PEM's in OpenSSL without a passphrase?
2. Should i use Curl which seems to provide an option for passphrases.
3. Any better suggestions (fairly new to security).
