FTPGRAB(1)                  Debian GNU/Linux manual                 FTPGRAB(1)



NAME
       ftpgrab - a file mirroring utility

SYNOPSIS
       ftpgrab [options]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the ftpgrab command.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       ftpgrab is an utility for maintaining FTP mirrors. In fact not unlike
       the mirror perl program. However ftpgrab is oriented towards the
       smaller site which doesn't have the resources to mirror entire version
       trees of software.
