Utility to mirror a website?

Is there a utility that will mirror a website from an arbitrary starting location. KWebGet looks like it ought to do this, but it seems to require that you start from a page named "index.html" which is more often than not - not the place one wants to start from.

Have you tried using wget? It has a ton of options for mirroring web sites. (most distributions of linux already have this installed... Try typing man wget)

I took a look at the man pages for wget - it looks perfect.

Thank you.
