File mirroring utility, not dissimilar to Mirror
ftpgrab is a file mirroring utility, not dissimilar to Mirror. However its primary feature is the ability to parse version numbers out of file name strings. It is also aimed at smaller sites that will want to mirror specific files rather than bulk copy remote directories.
This makes is possible to e.g. always have the latest linux kernel tarball on your site, but without the hit of keeping older versions. ftpgrab is capable of detecting that "linux-2.2.2.tar.gz" on the remote site is newer than "linux-2.2.1.tar.gz" on the local disk, so it will download the new version then delete the old local one.
Please consider ftpgrab to be ALPHA software. Take this to mean that lots of planned features aren't yet implemented. Also, only myself has used it so there will be bugs. However if you are brave enough to try it, expect me to help and/or fix bugs as your reward
ftpgrab is GPL licence. You will probably have better luck on a glibc
distribution with egcs as your c++ compiler.
To conclude Ftpgrab works on Linux operating system and can be easily downloaded using the below download link according to Not Specified license.
