w3mir is a all purpose HTTP copying and mirroring tool. The main focus of w3mir is to create and maintain a browseable copy of one, or several, remote WWW site(s). Used to the max w3mir can retreive the contents of several related sites and leave the mirror browseable via a local web server, or from a filesystem, such as directly from a CDROM.

w3mir's goal is to be able to make usefull mirrors of any reasonable WWW site. It specifically preserves link integrity within the mirrored documents as well as the integrety of links outside the mirror, following redirects as needed. If you want it to. w3mir has a powerfull ``multi scope'' mechanism enabeling the user to make mirrors of several related sites and have links between them refer to the mirrored documents rather than the original site. w3mir has several features directed at getting mirrors for CDROM burning and handling of some not too often seen problems when mirroring.

w3mir supports HTML4, and has partial support for CSS, Java and ActiveX. And it should work on Win32 machines.


This has come in handy where wget didn't do the trick.
