1wget - web site mirroring software

3This directory contains a version of the GNU wget program that was written by
4Hrvoje Niksic and others and distributed under the GNU General Public Licence

6The GNU wget homepage is http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/~prikryl/wget.html

8A couple of very small changes were made to this package by Stefan Boddie
9(sjboddie@cs.waikato.ac.nz). The USE_STDARG preprocessor definition was
10added to the VC++ makefile as it appeared to need it to compile on either
11VC++ 4.2 or VC++ 6.0. A change was also made to prevent backslashes from
12mistakenly being converted to "@5c" on windows.
13
142003/11/27 - sjboddie@cs.waikato.ac.nz made a few more small changes to fix
15h_errno bug preventing code from compiling on latest versions of GCC.
16
172004/06/30 - kjdon@cs.waikato.ac.nz replaced version 1.5.3 with version 1.9.
18It compiled as is under Windows XP, using VC++ 6.0, under Linux using GCC 3.2.3
19and GCC 2.95.3. So I haven't made any changes.
20Under Windows, I haven't compiled it with openssl, so it doesn't support
21https://. OpenSSL comes with a warning about it being illegal in some countries
22to distribute cryptographic technology, so I haven't used it. Look at
23wget-1.9/windows/README for Windows compiling instructions if you want to add
24it in.
25
262008/07/03 - oranfry@cs.waikato.ac.nz replaced version 1.9 with version 1.11.4.
27Version 1.9 didn't compile statically with the new libraries which come with
28fedora, so upgrading. Had to apply the patch at
29http://marc.info/?l=wget&m=115131792408685&w=2 to get it to compile under
30windows(VC++ 6.0), and those changes are in the tar.gz file in the repository.
31Again, no ssl in windows wget. The packages/configure and packages/Makefile
32files perform the same operations on wget as before, just the directory name
33has changed from wget/wget-1.9 to wget/wget-1.11.4.
