Definition Edit

A website capture tool is a third-party application that automates the capture of a collection of Web pages within a website.

Overview Edit

It would be time consuming to manually navigate to and save each Web page on a large website. Numerous commercial and freeware tools are available for capturing websites. In general these programs are designed to navigate to each link on a Web page and capture all of the content, including embedded files and source code, of those links.

For websites written in scripting languages, it may not be possible to capture all the specific content of interest with website capture tools.
