Is it possible to download the entire wiki as a PDF document or collection of HTML pages in order to allow offline viewing? It is possible to create a PDF of a single page using the drop-down menu on the right of each page, but this doesn't appear to include the linked content within the wiki, so it would be a long process to do this manually for each page (and it would lose the structure).

Very cool. What is the difference between roswiki.tar.gz and doc.tar.gz?

roswiki is the wiki pages, doc is the doxygen/epydoc/other API docs.

rsync -azv --bwlimit=200 --delete

It will download many files into a directory, currently totals 1.45GB.

       Unauthorized use is prohibited - violators will be prosecuted

                For more information about the OSL visit:

          This host is the home to the primary archives of several
           projects.  We would prefer that only primary/secondary
                    mirrors use this service.  Thanks!

Once it is done open in a browser

(looks like the rsync host was changed in 2017 from to OSU - the 'we would prefer' wording above makes it seem like they don't want random people making personal archives though?)
