Projects / w3mir


w3mir is an "all purpose" HTTP copying and mirroring program. The long development time has resulted in a very feature-rich first version. w3mir consists of a Perl script that runs on Unix and Win32 platforms. It supports HTML4.0 and has partial support for CSS2.

            From the web page:

            Please note that w3mir 1.0.9 and later now works with all known versions of LWP and the URI module. 1.0.8 did not.

            w3mir 1.0.9 can use new versions of LWP/URI

            w3mir -- sometimes great sometimes poor
            When w3mir works, it's excellent. I'm using it to mirror a few of my sites. However, the fact that it doesn't work with modern versions of URI and LWP (in libwww) makes it uncooperative with other web-using perl programs, and has made it difficult to use on machines that are more up-to-date in their libraries.
