shareware) is httrack
developed by Xavier Roche and Yann Philippot at CERN. The software if
freeware and is available for Unix, Linux, Solaris and Windows platforms. I
have archived sites up to 250MB in size and over 40000 files with no
difficulty at all. The spider is highly customizable, has extensive support

The software and the documentation can be found at http://httrack.free.fr
