I don't use the cl/unix but <> shows you'll
have to quote the asterisks: "-*" "+*.edu/*"

send one interrupt, it should finish the current transfers and stops.
Also the above link/limit options allows:
  MN maximum overall size that can be uploaded/scanned
  EN maximum mirror time in seconds (60=1 minute, 3600=1 hour)
  GN pause transfer if N bytes reached, and wait until lock file is deleted

from servers. Servers execute php, cgi, asp, etc files and deliver html.  A
mirror is not a backup of a site, it is a static copy.

it will start with and spider down and away from there.  Normally it
would stay on site, but the *.edu overrides that.
You might want to place separate sites in separate subdirectories:
  N104 Identical to N4 except that "web" is replaced by the site's name
