No. tmp are temporary binary files not the

Ah, I see. I may have misunderstood something else I read on the forum. So a
file "foo.html.tmp" is deleted when httrack has finished parsing it, and
foo.html is written, right?
What was confusing me (and still is) is that some of those html.tmp files seem
to remain for an awfully long time (long enough that I thought they were
_never_ getting rewritten as regular .html files, or at least until the
program was finished running.)  So any .html.tmp files I have while the
program is running are still being parsed, and if it's aking a long time for
that to happen, that's because of a backlog in the parser?
Thanks for the assistance,
