For a friend who wanted to download all the titles from The Baen online library without doing it by hand, I prodded at the source to their pages, and came up with some incantations to make it easy. I provide them here for your usage.
wget -r -np -l 1 http://www.baen.com/library/titles.htm
cat *.htm | grep option | grep value | cut -d\" -f2 | grep http | xargs -n1 wget
Note that the prefix of a file determines what type it is.
- H is HTML
- M is MS Reader
- P is Palm
- R is Rocket
- D is RTF
