i'm crawling a forum and I keep stumbling across certain threads that have been going on for ten years.
i can certainly exclude these using wget option:
and I can also exclude them by inserting the string in the wgetrc file
but what i'd like to do is just call a file that contains the string, like you can do with the -i option where you call a file that pulls in the URLs of interest
so instead of (from the GNU wget 1.11.4 manual)
exclude directories = string Specify a comma-separated list of directories you wish to exclude from download— the same as ‘-X string’
so i'd like the string to actually pull in the contents of a file. is there a way to do this?
