Er, sort of cancel that.  By luck, "Aria" falls at the early part of the
alphabet and I seem to have found just the right graphical tool that can
recurse X levels deep.

The only problem is ... I think it respects a site's ".robots" or
"robots.txt" file (this is bad).  We'll see what I can come up with.

It sure would be nice -- and worth registering just for the feature -- if
Opera could download all files ending in "X" on current page and maintain
(mirror) directory structure locally (to hard disk)!!  The research goes on.

Hi all.  I'm searching and searching the (X11 / GUI) ports at and but I was wondering if some of you
could help me with a better, targeted keyword that describes this kind of
tool or application?

All I'd like is a graphical tool that prompts the user for a URL then
proceeds to mirror that URL to the working directory or to a "base"
directory specified in its preferences.  It would also be nice to filter by
URL's ending in ___ for example, .jpg, .jpeg, .mp3, and so forth.

I used a command line tool called "httrack" for many months until I found
that upon each successive run of the program, it deletes the results of the
last run!  Stupid!

Thanks for any ideas you all may have.
