            wget cannot really do mirroring of a web site - for example, it cannot get .htaccess files, even in FTP mode.

            I believe this to be fixed since version 0.6.6.

            btw: i tend to fix bugs much earlier if they are reported. In this special case i could have sent you a patch for at least have a year or so.

            oops, note to self: try the newest version of a software before posting. symlink handling seems to have been fixed.

            as the other poster had pointed out, wget cannot (at the moment) *delete* files on local copies that have been removed on remote server. this makes it useless for mirroring.

            ftpcopy is simple to use, but i had tried a couple versions in the past and both of them mishandled symlinks, so i had to ditch ftpcopy for now. all the symlinks copied from the server become something like this:

            CPAN.html -> .html -> authors/id/J/JO/JONO/cpan.html

            ENDINGS -> NGS -> .cpan/ENDINGS

            ls-lR.gz -> R.gz -> indices/ls-lR.gz

            hope it will be fixed. i'd ilke to try it again.

            WGET vs. FTPCOPY
            When u use WGET then each time it will connect grab file and disconnet.
            FTPCOPY connect grab anything and after DISCONNECT.

            WGET better for single files
            FTPCOPY better for mirroring FTP
