FAQ download

Postby metric » Sun Sep 07, 2008 1:00 pm

Hi,

I recently visited http://texnik.dante.de/cgi-bin//mainFAQ.cgi, and then visted on the topic of
Tables/Arrays, thru this hyperlink http://texnik.dante.de/cgi-bin/mainFAQ. ... ble#mathsf. There were pdf and tex files of examples

My question is there a way i can download all this faq as a pdf file. I was unable to locate any such link on the site. also all the example file (both pdf/tex format ) in one zip file. This would be really great a I would be then able to go thru the various topic offline.

Please if there is a way, can someone help me the link.

Best regards,
metric

I found a solution which depends on Firefox and its extension "DownThemAll!". You can use the fast filtering line with "*.pdf , *.tex" and so download all the files you want. Some of the filtered files are superfluous and can be unchecked. Works fine for me.

Thanks for the help.

I downloaded the addon, however was unable dowload all files at once.
against the url field it showed
http://texnik.dante.de/TeXnik/listings/literate0.pdf

I tried entering the filter at
http://texnik.dante.de/TeXnik/listings/*.pdf

however it didn't work.
i also tried
http://texnik.dante.de/TeXnik/listings///./ to download all files

This still doesn't work.

If you have tried downloading all the .tex, .html, and .pdf files can you help me ?

Thank you once again.

Sorry for the long delay. As I stated earlier, you have to use the fast filtering function (in German called "Schnelles Filtern") as seen in the screenshot. Go to the site you gave as second link [1]. Call DownThemAll! (DTA!) via context menu and enter the right suffixes in the fast filtering line. All matching files will automatically be checked and so chosen for download.
