 Wow! Nancy Reagan is smarter than I thought. My
just say No! generated more response than any net
post I've ever made.
 I was not the orginal poster, having already
downloaded the docs the hard way.  I was just
answering Chris' question, since I'd never heard
of "wget".
 By the way, I'm quite capable of doing my own web
search for it, but thanks anyway to the multitude of
mailers and posters who've responded.
 I have yet, however, to actually see instructions on
how to use this tool.

1) Go get

2) gzip -cd wget-1.5.3.tar.gz | tar xf -

3) cd wget-1.5.3

4) "Port it" by typing ./configure; make

5) install it if you wish

6) wget -r

Hey! It worked!
