As part of WebCopy 1.7's mission to reduce user confusion and make the product more appealing, a pair of new options for controlling local file name generation have been introduced, as well as correcting a potentially confusing bug.
By default, WebCopy will name local files to match their content type. For example, if you download the homepage of a website which is named
index.php, WebCopy will save a local file named
index.html - end users would probably very confused trying to open a
.php file and either the operating system doesn't know how to handle it, or it executes the PHP runtime.
