FTPGRAB(1) Debian GNU/Linux manual FTPGRAB(1)


ftpgrab - a file mirroring utility


ftpgrab [options]


This manual page documents briefly the ftpgrab command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

ftpgrab is an utility for maintaining FTP mirrors. In fact not unlike the mirror perl program. However ftpgrab is oriented towards the smaller site which doesn't have the resources to mirror entire version trees of software.
