If you are using a unix based platform, then a leading tilde on directories is
interpreted by the shell (/home/USER) probably not what you want.

Httrack is already rewriting links to relative filenames including directory
site/dir/ to file web/dir/index.html,
and absolute /dir/file or site/dir/file to relative ../dir/file.html so you
can't get that in general.

Xavier makes the source code is available. Shouldn't be hard to find.
