NAME

w3mfix - fixup program for w3mir

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>w3mfixB> [<B>optionsB>] [<B>configuration-fileB>]

DESCRIPTION

<B>w3mfixB> is the companion program to w3mir. It can be used for several URL editing operations usefull in different situations.

When starting <B>w3mfixB> will read it’s configuration file. It’s name is either .w3mirc (w3mir.ini on win32) or specified on the commandline.

<B>w3mfixB> is controlled by the ’Fixup’ directive of the configuration file (described in the w3mir documentation). <B>w3mfixB> is also affected by ’Index-name’ and the one special commandline option it knows, as well as the directives/options controlling verbosity and debugging information.

DESCRIPTION

<B>w3mfixB> can rewrite URLs in these ways:
o Rewrite URLs that resutled in redirects to point to the place redirected to. This is needed in all cases and will always be fixed by <B>w3mfixB>.
o Change URLs ending in .../ into .../index.html (or .../Welcome.html). This is, probably, not needed when the mirror is meant do be used with a web-server. It is usefull for browsing directly from disk or CDROM, but in this case it’s, most often, required. To disable this specify the noindex option with the ’Fixup’ directive.

The default is to transform URLs ending in .../ into .../index.html.

To controll the name of the index file use the Index-name directive as documented in w3mir

o Change URL links to documents outside the mirror to point to some local document. Could be usefull if the mirror is destined for a CDROM to be used on a unconnected machine.

THIS IS NOT YET IMPLEMENTED

o Change URL links to documents that w3mir was unable/forbidden to retrive to point to some local document. Pointing these to a nice informative document is probably better than random error messages from the browser.

THIS IS NOT YET IMPLEMENTED

o And, least, but far from last, <B>w3mfixB> can be used to prepare an established mirror for enlargement.

This feature is used thus: Add the new site or subsite to be mirrored on the configuration file (by adding <B>Also:B> and <B>Also-quene:B> directives). Then run <B>w3mfixB> with the <B>-editrefB> option. When the <B>-editrefB> option is specified <B>w3mfixB> will not perform any other editing tasks.

E.g.; To add http://www.yahoo.com/Science/Artificial_Life/ to your mirror add something like



          Also: http://www.yahoo.com/Science/Artificial_Life/ yahoo



to the configuration file, then run w3mfix:



          w3mfix -editref www.yahoo.com/Science/Artificial_Life



This will cause all references to www.yahoo.com/Science/Artificial_Life (and under) to be edited so they point to within the mirror. After <B>w3mfixB> has finished you can run w3mir in the normal manner.

BUGS

Naah.
