Hi !

As i already wrote in my posting you answered at, i cant update the filters
for each page, because - as winhttrack (or httrack) supports it - i have a
file, which winhtrack reads, with a lot of URLs in it where from i have to
download specified files automatically.

So using filters for downloading files, specified by size and type, from a
list of URLs and subdirectories at the same server (and from nowhere else),
given in "URL list (.txt):"  is impossible ?
I really have to set a filter containing -all- filetypes to download, for
-each- URL i specify in my URL-List-File ?!?
I tried it. 70 URLs. If i give them in the URL-window, all works fine (except
for downloading the damn :-) external pages).

If i add the 75 necessary filters, winhttrack crashes with:

(sorry, i get the message in german, i try to translate it into english :-)

WINHTTRACK is being closed now.
If the problems occours again, restart your computer.

thats a pity, because httrack looked like just what i was searching for... but
that renders the URL-List-Textfile-Import-possibility rather useless...

btw., i thought that when i set at "experts only" the "global
travel mode" to "stay on the same domain" or similar, no
pages/files from other domains are being downloaded ? but that doesnt seem to
be the case.

hm. Couldnt it be possible to implement something like variables, containing
the current URL from the filelist , to the filters, so that one could filter
something like


(i looked at httrack.c to patch it myself, but without understanding a word in
french, thus without being able to read any comments, its not that easy :-))

Thanks, bye, Richard :-)
