Question web2disk - howto?

Hello All,

First time try - I cannot find any instructions anywhere about using the web2disk tool. I tried the usual things web2disk -h , web2disk ? and suchlike but nothing except the program seemed to be running and DOING SOMETHING!

Can anyone enlighten me? I am used to using Plucker which is a similar tool for
my Palm PDA which works extremely well.

For example, how doies one specify:
1. Where the output goes
2. How many levels of link to follow (to avoid downloading the whole of the internet)
3. Whether or not to allow links to another site

etc.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Hello Korvid,

Thanks for your (very prompt!) reply and thanks for not using any words like "useless" or "half-wit" in your reply!

Best Wishes,

Dave

Just wish to ask the same question on using web2disk.

I'm interested in the --match-regexp parameter, because I think it could be used to somehow control the webpages I wish to download. For example, if I have a webiste:

http://www.test.com/money/index.html

and I wish to download only any links (may be one link depth or -r 1) inside www.test.com/money/ , how can I specify the --match-regexp?

Thanks
