is pavuk dead?
Pavuk is a friggin awesome program, outperforming wget, both in functionality and speed thanks to the multithreading. But.. its been quite a while since an update was last released (2001). Has pavuk development ceased? Tried to email Ondrej but no reply. Does anyone know anything about this?

i have to agree that this is a great tool. as a matter of fact, it saved my hide during a production run that wget couldn't quite handle. i had used wget on a quarterly basis to crawl a website (using --no-directories option) and noticed it was overwriting files because of case sensitivity (linux server downloading to windows machine). also, i had written a quick script to rename any files (and links within the files) which wget had renamed as a result of duplicates (default.png, default.png.1, etc..). pavuk resolves all these problems nicely.

thank you very much!

Very nice tool
pavuk has a lot of options and it seems it can do everything. I like the limiting by MIME type. wget cannot do this :-(

Hint: to use -max_time you have to change the tye of max_time in src/config.h from int to double

Pavuk is wonderful!
Many people don't know about Pavuk. I used to use wget and lynx to grab files from the command-line, but Pavuk has SO many more capabilities - it can do things wget, lynx, and other tools have never done well, or at all.

Great job, Ondrej!

Really cool program, but lacks stability
I used wget for a long time and for me it was interesting to compare it to pavuk. The thing that surprised me most was the bunch of features. The program is great and really does its job. There are several minor complains, though. I found several bugs in first few hours of usage. Also, I think that user interface in DownloaderX is more convenient and intuitive. At this point I stopped and said to myself: "OK, u want it - u fix it!". That's why I love open source. Pavuk is now my must-have tool on all computers I work.

Great product, no comments?!
I'm really surprised that this great product has
had no comments so far. It's very convenient
to use.
