wget question

Hi all folks,

wget question

What is the correct syntax to download all files/subdirectory of a URL

I could not find a complete examples of wget usage with google search.
Could any folk shed me some light?

Hi contrasutra,

Thanks for your advice.

I tried "man wget" before making google search. I need more examples and more clear explanation.

Just to expand a bit, I believe (if I may take the liberty) that what contrasutra intended was:

man wget
