-*- text -*- GNU Wget ======== Current Web home: http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/ GNU Wget is a free utility for non-interactive download of files from the Web. It supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies. It can follow links in HTML pages and create local versions of remote web sites, fully recreating the directory structure of the original site. This is sometimes referred to as "recursive downloading." While doing that, Wget respects the Robot Exclusion Standard (/robots.txt). Wget can be instructed to convert the links in downloaded HTML files to the local files for offline viewing. Recursive downloading also works with FTP, where Wget can retrieves a hierarchy of directories and files. With both HTTP and FTP, Wget can check whether a remote file has changed on the server since the previous run, and only download the newer files. Wget has been designed for robustness over slow or unstable network connections; if a download fails due to a network problem, it will keep retrying until the whole file has been retrieved. If the server supports regetting, it will instruct the server to continue the download from where it left off. If you are behind a firewall that requires the use of a socks style gateway, you can get the socks library and compile wget with support for socks. Most of the features are configurable, either through command-line options, or via initialization file .wgetrc. Wget allows you to install a global startup file (/usr/local/etc/wgetrc by default) for site settings. Wget works under almost all Unix variants in use today and, unlike many of its historical predecessors, is written entirely in C, thus requiring no additional software, such as Perl. The external software it does work with, such as OpenSSL, is optional. As Wget uses the GNU Autoconf, it is easily built on and ported to new Unix-like systems. The installation procedure is described in the INSTALL file. As with other GNU software, the latest version of Wget can be found at the master GNU archive site ftp.gnu.org, and its mirrors. Wget resides at <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/wget/>. Please report bugs in Wget to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. See the file `MAILING-LIST' for information about Wget mailing lists. Wget's home page is at <http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/>. If you would like to contribute code for Wget, please read http://wget.addictivecode.org/PatchGuidelines. Wget was originally written and mainained by Hrvoje Niksic. Please see the file AUTHORS for a list of major contributors, and the ChangeLogs for a detailed listing of all contributions.
