I add the following: httrack (the commandline tool), 
winhttrack (the windoz GUI) and webhttrack are all "simple" 
programs, that link to libhttrack, registering their 

Here's the httrack.c main() function:

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
  int ret = 0;
  hts_init();  // initialize libhttrack

  // register our callbacks
  htswrap_add("receive-header", htsshow_receiveheader);

  // launch
  ret = hts_main(argc,argv);
  if (ret) {
    fprintf(stderr, "* %s\n", hts_errmsg());
  return ret;

.. and that's all. WinHTTrack and WebHTTrack almost do the 
same, except that the callbacks are very differents: they 
all build a commandline, initialize the library, register 
callbacks, and start the engine.

(BTW, reading httrack.c is a good tutorial for writing a 
GUI for httrack :) )
