retrieve javadoc with wget

hey folks,

sometimes the API documentation is not provided in a downloadable format, so I was a little bit frustated … here is a easy wget command to download the API from a URL:

wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --restrict-file-names=windows --domains DOMAIN --no-parent http://DOMAIN/javadocs/

I’ve found it here!

retrieve files with wget

hey folks,

do want to retrieve some files from a directory with the http protocol in a fast way? in the gnu wget manual you’ll find some possible solutions. but this particular command was my favourite:

wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A.pdf http://www.server.com/dir/

here we are, all pdfs downloaded from the directory!
