Download entire web site for offline viewing

Recently I was goggling for an app (for free) that allows the download of a web site for offline reading and then I came across a StackOverflow post that says use Wget.

I use Wget to download files but I never thought it could be used to download web sites.

Before start using Wget you will need to download Wget. I recommend always the latest version and you can get it for Windows from here.

Now to download a web site you will need to combine several arguments and the result would be:

wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --restrict-file-names=windows --domains mydomain.com --no-parent http://www.mydomain.com/site

If you want to know the definition of each arguments just type wget –help or check the wget manual page.
