Default Flight Global

www.flightglobal.com

This website has scans of the weekly Flight and the Aeronautical Engineer. ALL THE SCANS! From 1909 to 2004. Unfortunately, it is not organized as a PDF file per issue, it's a PDF file per page. Is there a way I can write a script to download ALL of the issues?

INFINITE REP FOR WHOEVER HELPS ME DO IT!

Joga

you put in the address of the home page and it'll follow links on the home page to other pages on the site, you can set the depth of links that you want to follow, in this case I imagine that you'll want to set it to follow all links, with the only limit being that you want to keep in the site url (e.g not follow external links).

then, basically, if there is a link to the PDF file on the site the software will download it.

basically the point of the software is that you put in a start page, (e.g www.computerforums.org) and it'll mirror the site (by following hyperlinks)
