       ftpgrab - a file mirroring utility


       ftpgrab [options]


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the ftpgrab command.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       ftpgrab  is  an utility for maintaining FTP mirrors. In fact not unlike
       the mirror perl  program.  However  ftpgrab  is  oriented  towards  the
       smaller  site which doesn’t have the resources to mirror entire version
       trees of software.
