This is a GNU/Linux frontend for Xavier Roche's HTTrack Website Copier
for reading Web pages offline and/or for mirroring Web sites. The RPMs and their associated spec files were
generously contributed by Alexandre Aractingi. The Ubuntu 7.10 deb of ghttrack-0.5.2
was packaged and generously made available by Christian Knauber.
- To make full use of this program, you'll need to have the HTTrack
backend (main engine) installed on your system.
- Easy to use (no need to remember httrack command-line switches).
- Easy access to httrack's log file (no need to manually open hts-log.txt).
- Saves the settings of up to 10 often-used projects.
- For ghttrack-0.3 and older versions, the main window does not get updated while mirroring is in progress,
causing the program to appear to be crashed.
|Note1: The precompiled binaries were compiled on a Mandrake 9.1 system, but may also be compatible with
other RedHat-based distros released around the same time as Mandrake 9.1 (circa March 2003).|
|Note2: The number in parentheses is the version of the backend (HTTrack) that the frontend (cHTTrack/gHTTrack)
was written for. Note, however, that the frontend should also work with any backend newer than the version
listed. You can download the latest version of the backend from the HTTrack website.
