    Often at work it has become necessary to grab all the files in a web directory (a prime example is with manuals for products- it wold be very helpful to be able to just send a program to the directory with instructions to grab all .PDF files so I can get all the manuals from a series of products rather than downloading individually).

    I found one web app, PAQRAT, which was clumsy, errored, crashing and generally lame. I wondered if anyone else had seen an application to do this- and could suggest a decent one.

    I've used Teleport Pro in the past for jobs like this - this was a while ago, it should still be easy to find.

    I've used this in the past, seems like what you are looking for:
