NAME ^

webmirror - Simple WWW mirror program

SYNOPSIS ^

  webmirror [--from URL] [--to directory] [--proxy] [--checklinks]
            [--verbose]

DESCRIPTION ^

This program can be used to mirror parts of WWW servers to a local directory. The traversal of the remote pages is recursive, that is, linked pages are mirrored, too, if they start with the same prefix. For example, if you mirror http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~leitner/perl/, then http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~leitner/perl/webmirror would be mirrored, too, but http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~leitner/ would not. These are the meanings of the options:

--from <URL>

Where to mirror from. This has to be an HTTP URL.

--to <directory>

Where to put the mirrored files.

--proxy

Use the WWW proxy settings from the environment (http_proxy, no_proxy). You should not use this if your proxy is a caching proxy, only if it is a firewall proxy. Otherwise you may mirror old versions of the pages.

--checklinks

Check not only links that have the same prefix but one level of other links, too. This is very useful for checking your own pages for invalid outbound links.

--verbose

Print debugging information.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

webmirror normally prints only errors, for example:

  Getting http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~leitner/mutt/idnex.html
  Error: 404 not found
  Linked from: http://www.math.fu-berlin.de/~leitner/index.html
