This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

wget - grabbing web pages from command line

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 11 September 2003
A quick note on the wget utility ... great way to grab a copy of a web page from the command line and save it to your local disc. Also has recursive and mirror options.  Great for mirroring .html .gif and .jpg files - beware of scripts and .php and .jsp files, as you'll get the parsed version rather than the originals ...
           wget  -m  -w2

That example will mirror the named site, starting at index.html.  The -w2 is important because it puts a 2 second delay between each page rather than burning up all the bandwidth on what might be a large transfer!

Wget is included with Linux distributions ... otherwise find it at or alternatives listed at if you would like a windows binary!
