lwp-mirror – Simple mirror utility


lwp-mirror [-v] [-t timeout]


This program can be used to mirror a document from a WWW server. The
document is only transferred if the remote copy is newer than the local
copy. If the local copy is newer nothing happens.

Use the “-v” option to print the version number of this program.

The timeout value specified with the “-t” option. The timeout value is
the time that the program will wait for response from the remote server
before it fails. The default unit for the timeout value is seconds.
You might append “m” or “h” to the timeout value to make it minutes or
hours, respectively.

Because this program is implemented using the LWP library, it only
supports the protocols that LWP supports.
