    App to suck info out of website?
    Hi there,

    Does anyone know of an application that can 'suck' all the data out of a web site so it can be used offline at a later date? There's a site with hundreds of articles on that I'd like to be able to store as an off-line library. All the articles are separate links (not downloadable pdfs) and, as I said, there are literaly hundreds of them.

    the easiest way is to use a great browser called firefox, in firefox, control+click or right click the page>save page as, in the options, make sure it says web page, complete. this gives you any and all audio, video, images, etc.

    Thanks for that.

    The problem is I'd need to save hundred of pages manually that way as there may be 50+ articles on each contents page (of which there are many). Do you know of a way to automatically save each of these linked articles as well (basically, the whole site)?
