Wget and Curl

exclude a specific directory ——————————–

wget --exclude-directories=/media/ -m $web_url

download single-page

The trick here is to get images specified in CSS. 要求wget版本在1.12以上.

wget -E -H -k -K -p url


wget -pk url

-p/--page-requisites: 这个是最重要的. It includes things like inclided images, sound, import css etc.

-k/--convert-links: 这个其次重要. convert the links for local viewing.

-E: add extension to the download file, useful for .asp types.

-H/--span-hosts: spanning across hosts

-K/--backup-converted: create a backup with .orig suffix.

forge an User agent

有些网站不喜欢wget/curl之流来爬内容, 这时候需要设置User agent和其它header信息. 最好把它们放在.wgetrc里.

header = Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
header = Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5
header = Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
header = Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
header = Keep-Alive: 300
user_agent = Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009080316 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.13
referer = http://www.google.com

wget --referer="http://www.google.com" \
--user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070725 Firefox/" \
--header="Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5" \
--header="Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5" \
--header="Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate" \
--header="Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7" \
--header="Keep-Alive: 300" 


一直认为有了wget, curl就没什么用了. 后来体会用它查看HTTP header挺方便的.


aptitude install curl python-pycurl

用curl显示http header

curl -I http://google.com

curl -L url
