Hi to all

I was experimenting with httrack to familiarize for future use (so please
don't think that what I was doing was silly or that I should find a better way
to do all this :)) but I found out that wildcards don't work

For example, I guess many of you are familiar with the Tolkien site
Ardalambion. It's a simple site AFAIK, with no Java, no cookies, no flash or
anything (http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/)

I thought downloading its files with httrack and play a bit with the
wildcards, however I foud out that either they don't work, or I didn't use
them correctly

So, if you examine some links (for example, those for Quenya), start with a q
letter (quenya.htm, qcourse.htm, qevolution.pdf, qlexicon.htm and others). I
tried putting -q or -q*.htm to see if the program would exclude them. The
final command line was:

httrack <http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/> -O "/home/paladin/websites/arda" -%v
-q* (later -q*.htm)

however httrack, both times downloaded ALL the filess, even the .htm files,
who start with q: quenya.htm, qcourse.htm and all the like

Am I doing anything wrong?
