    Anybody know a good "website grabbing" prog?

    I need to dl a medium sized website and all the website grabbers ive found on google have this crap where they only download like 100 or so files and then you have to register. Since its a pretty big site, i dont really feel like staying up until 3 in the morning doing ctrl+s.

    There is also a tool called Offline commander. Offline commander will allow you to grab entire sites for offline viewing.

    HTTrack is also a very useful program with lots of options that works on both Windows and Unix. However, if you're downloading someone else's site please be considerate because it can use a lot of bandwidth and other server resources (particularly if you're making several requests per second) which tends to annoy webmasters and server admins and you may end up with your IP blocked by the site.

    There's also Teleport, I think it's trial version for a while.. or maybe not, look it up, it's been a while since I used it.
