First, I think its in place to point out that we've now drifted quite far
from the solution the poor guy originally requested. Shellscripting etc is
not a simple solution, which his question "In which folder will the site
be stored" illustrates, quite unintuitive, and all of this still demands
the downloading of entire sites in HTML... i.e. - not what was requested
originally - simply tutorials in pdf, which might be quite a good idea to
try providing further on.
Though, converting to pdf etc. is still interesting, and my $0.02 is that
printing to any FILE-connected (i.e. - choose FILE rather than LPR1/2)
generic Postscript-printer under Windows will generate what seems to be a
proper ps-file, just rename it from file.prn or whatever Windows prefers
to call them, to file.ps.
This seems to work, at least to the extent that I've brought such files
(via gzip and scp) through the school's unix lpr-printers, they can be
edited with mpage/psnup etc. Though, I figure that a good idea might be to
also bring them through ps2ps to clean them up.
