Subject RE: keeping old doc versions
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2007 13:55:11 GMT
Sounds like a good plan, that probably works out 
about the same as mine.  

FWIW, wget is a GNU "non-interactive network 
retriever" that's been around for years.  (I used 
the Cygwin version).

This is designed to "grab" info from the Internet
and create a local copy.  The one thing that it 
adds to the mix is how it handles some required 
files.  E.g., it will grab required images/style
sheets from the same site but outside the specified 
URL and move it into the directory and rewrite the 
URL's in the retreived HTML pages.

Makes a nice quick way to get a "snapshot" of
a section of an online site.
