Wget - syntax question


Hi folks,

What will be the correct sytnax to download a document from a website including all links but excluding mother-diretories/folders, e.g.

The document named CDoc, under www.abc.com/dir_1/dir_2/dir_3/CDoc/

# wget -r www.abc.com/dir_1/dir_2/dir_3/CDoc/

download all directories/folders above. I only need /CDoc/

TIA

B.R.

I use --cut-dirs=# where is the number of directories before the one you want.

For example, if I want to get the SRPMS from this site, that has 9 directories before it.
Code:
wget -cm -nH --passive --cut-dirs=9 \
ftp://mirror.dulug.duke.edu \
/ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/3/en/os/i386/SRPMS
