in reply to Best way to recursively grab a website

If you don't mind one system call, you could go with wget, an excellent tool to download an entire website. Command line option allow to restrict downloads to a single site, a certain depth and what not. All in all, a very valuable tool. It can be found at http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html.

Did I mention it's free software (a GNU project to be precise)?

Hope this helps, -gjb-
