hi, i'm new

Post by ace_drone » Wed Sep 08, 2004 1:25 am

hi, i'm a classical language fan. i found this site while looking for greek texts online, and i'm glad i did. i was a little tired of pasting from perseus! studied latin in college, am studying greek now in my never-ending education. i hope i'll actually be good at it someday, i'm still very rusty, but slogging through!

anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.

Dont Need To Paste

Post by Jefferson Cicero » Thu Sep 09, 2004 4:52 pm

:) You don't have to paste in order to get text from Perseus if you have a download manager. I recommend Internet Download Manager, which you can download free from Cnet. It has a fourty or fourty five day free trial, and it doesn't cost much to get the full version.

Simply install IDM, then go to the book you want to download from Perseus, and make sure you go to the table of contents page. Then right click, and select, 'Download all links with IDM'. It will queue up all the links to all the pages of the book and download them into the 'Downloads' folder that IDM puts into My Documents on installation. Just put the downloaded htmls into a folder with the proper name and your set.

Just make sure you do this from the table of contents page or you wont get all the pages.
