A bit off linux subject, but a question nonetheless


Hey all, I was just wondering if there was a way to save a webpage as one big picture file..like jpeg or bitmap. Thanx all!!

"Mirroring it" in this case would mean downloading and saving the HTML file and all of the files associated with it (graphics and linked files). Be careful of what parameters you use ("-m", the one suggested turns on full recursion, so you'll get a copy of the entire web site not just the page). If you want to get the page and all of the graphics you'll need to set the recursion level to 1 -l "-l 1". Unfortunately, you'll get more than you want. Read the wget man page, and if you have Perl LWP installed, check out GET. You may want to try
Code:
GET -o ps http://www.some-where-else.net/thing.html | ps2pdf - output.ps
to get a pdf file. Not sure how well that will work, so let me know

OK, nevermind about the GET command, it does not do the graphics. Maybe next version.
