       httrack allows you to download a World  Wide  Web  site  from  the  Internet  to  a  local
       directory,  building  recursively  all  directories, getting HTML, images, and other files
       from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges  the  original  site's  relative  link-
       structure.  Simply  open  a  page  of  the "mirrored" website in your browser, and you can
       browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing  it  online.  HTTrack  can  also
       update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads.


               mirror site and only this site

       httrack +*.com/*.jpg -mime:application/*
               mirror  the  two  sites  together (with shared links) and accept any .jpg files on
              .com sites

       httrack +* -r6
              means get all files starting from bobby.html, with 6 link-depth, and possibility of
              going everywhere on the web

       httrack --spider -P
              runs the spider on using a proxy

       httrack --update

       These are the principals limits of HTTrack for that moment. Note that  we  did  not  heard
       about any other utility that would have solved them.

       -    Several   scripts   generating   complex   filenames   may   not   find   them   (ex:

       - Some java classes may not find some files on them (class included)

       - Cgi-bin links may not work properly in some cases (parameters needed).  To  avoid  them:
       use filters like -*cgi-bin*

       that will allow the bug to be reproduced, and say which version of httrack you are  using.
