  1. I have a web page which consists of lot of banners and images (which in turn are downloaded from other servers). How can I make use of wget to download all of these images etc..

  2. I’m not sure about that either, but you can try using the -k option, i’m guessing that’s what it does (download links from the html?)

  3. after doing a wget ,if your looking for a specific fiel type
    do this

    mkdir folder
    mv *.filetype folder

    , or if you want to remove only a specific file, in this case css

    rm *.css

    -r makes it repeat
    -p makes it download everything needed to run the site
    -k makes linked files nessasary to run the site and downlaods them too
    -H means that it can get info that is stored on other websites and used in this page
    -l is how deep it will go into the indexes and get files
