[libcares only] The given address(es) override the standard nameserver addresses, e. As configured in /etc/resolv. Wget needs to be built with libcares for this option to be available. ADDRESSES may be specified either as IPv4 or IPv6 addresses, comma-separated.
Currently, Wget does not traverse symbolic links to directories to download them recursively, though this feature may be added in the future. By default, when retrieving FTP directories recursively and a symbolic link is encountered, the symbolic link is traversed and the pointed-to files are retrieved.
You can encode unsafe characters in a URL as ‘%xy’, xy being the hexadecimal representation of the character’s ASCII value. Some common unsafe characters include ‘%’ (quoted as ‘%25’), ‘:’ (quoted as ‘%3A’), and ‘@’ (quoted as ‘%40’). Refer to RFC1738 for a comprehensive list of unsafe characters.
This saves time and at the same time reduces the load on the server. Normally, Wget asks the server to keep the connection open so that, when you download more than one document from the same server, they get transferred over the same TCP connection. Turn off the “keep-alive” feature for HTTP downloads.
So, if you want to download a whole page except for the cumbersome MPEGs and. Analogously, to download all files except the ones beginning with ‘bjork’, use ‘wget -R “bjork*”’. AU files, you can use ‘wget -R mpg,mpeg,au’. The quotes are to prevent expansion by the shell.
Gif”’ would have worked too. ‘–no-parent’ means that references to the parent directory are ignored (see Directory-Based Limits), and ‘-A. More verbose, but the effect is the same. Gif’ means to download only the GIF files. ‘-r -l1’ means to retrieve recursively (see Recursive Download), with maximum depth of 1.
However, the author of this option came across a page with tags like and came to the realization that specifying tags to ignore was not enough. One can’t just tell Wget to ignore , because then stylesheets will not be downloaded. Now the best bet for downloading a single page and its requisites is the dedicated ‘–page-requisites’ option.
Normally, Wget remembers the IP addresses it looked up from DNS so it doesn’t have to repeatedly contact the DNS server for the same (typically small) set of hosts it retrieves from. This cache exists in memory only; a new Wget run will contact DNS again. Turn off caching of DNS lookups.
Example: if some link points to //foo. Note that only the filename part has been modified. Css, then the link would be converted to //foo. Xyz with ‘–adjust-extension’ asserted and its local destination is intended to be. The rest of the URL has been left untouched, including the net path (//) which would otherwise be processed by Wget and converted to the effective scheme (ie.
Wget will use the supplied file as the HSTS database. You can use ‘–hsts-file’ to override this. Such file must conform to the correct HSTS database format used by Wget. By default, Wget stores its HSTS database in ~/. If Wget cannot parse the provided file, the behaviour is unspecified.
The “Title Page” means, for a printed book, the title page itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material this License requires to appear in the title page. For works in formats which do not have any title page as such, “Title Page” means the text near the most prominent appearance of the work’s title, preceding the beginning of the body of the text.
However, in some rare firewall configurations, active FTP actually works when passive FTP doesn’t. If you suspect this to be the case, use this option, or set passive_ftp=off in your init file. If the machine is connected to the Internet directly, both passive and active FTP should work equally well. Behind most firewall and NAT configurations passive FTP has a better chance of working.
