       lwp-rget - Retrieve WWW documents recursively

	lwp-rget [--verbose] [--auth=USER:PASS] [--depth=N] [--hier] [--iis]
		 [--keepext=mime/type[,mime/type]] [--limit=N] [--nospace]
		 [--prefix=URL] [--referer=URL] [--sleep=N] [--tolower] <URL>
	lwp-rget --version

       This program will retrieve a document and store it in a local file.  It will follow any
       links found in the document and store these documents as well, patching links so that they
       refer to these local copies.  This process continues until there are no more unvisited
       links or the process is stopped by the one or more of the limits which can be controlled
       by the command line arguments.

       This program is useful if you want to make a local copy of a collection of documents or
       want to do web reading off-line.

       All documents are stored as plain files in the current directory. The file names chosen
       are derived from the last component of URL paths.

       The options are:

	  Set the authentication credentials to user "USER" and password "PASS" if any restricted
	  parts of the web site are hit.  If there are restricted parts of the web site and
	  authentication credentials are not available, those pages will not be downloaded.

	  Limit the recursive level. Embedded images are always loaded, even if they fall outside
	  the --depth. This means that one can use --depth=0 in order to fetch a single document
	  together with all inline graphics.

	  The default depth is 5.

	  Download files into a hierarchy that mimics the web site structure.  The default is to
	  put all files in the current directory.

	  Set the value of the referer header for the initial request.	The special value "NONE"
	  can be used to suppress the referer header in any of subsequent requests.

	  Sends an "Accept: */*" on all URL requests as a workaround for a bug in IIS 2.0.  If no
	  Accept MIME header is present, IIS 2.0 returns with a "406 No acceptable objects were
	  found" error.  Also converts any back slashes (\\) in URLs to forward slashes (/).

	  Keeps the current extension for the list MIME types.	Useful when downloading
	  text/plain documents that shouldn't all be translated to *.txt files.

	  Limit the number of documents to get.  The default limit is 50.

	  Changes spaces in all URLs to underscore characters (_).  Useful when downloading files
	  from sites serving URLs with spaces in them.	  Does not remove spaces from fragments,
	  e.g., "file.html#somewhere in here".

	  Limit the links to follow. Only URLs that start the prefix string are followed.

	  The default prefix is set as the "directory" of the initial URL to follow.	For
	  instance if we start lwp-rget with the URL "http://www.sn.no/foo/bar.html", then prefix
	  will be set to "http://www.sn.no/foo/".

	  Use "--prefix=''" if you don't want the fetching to be limited by any prefix.

	  Sleep n seconds before retrieving each document. This options allows you to go slowly,
	  not loading the server you visiting too much.

	  Translates all links to lowercase.  Useful when downloading files from IIS since it
	  does not serve files in a case sensitive manner.

	  Make more noise while running.

	  Don't make any noise.

	  Print program version number and quit.

	  Print the usage message and quit.

       Before the program exits the name of the file, where the initial URL is stored, is printed
       on stdout.  All used filenames are also printed on stderr as they are loaded.  This print-
       ing can be suppressed with the --quiet option.
