With this Utility you can update the pages of a cache archive. The links to pages already archived are followed up by one or several start pages. Changed pages are stored in an update archive.
Start of Utility
You start the update with one of the following script files in the folder: MM3-WebAssistantProfessional/script/
|MM3-Utility.bat||Windows of Microsoft|
|MM3-Utility.sh||Linux and UNIX|
|MM3-Utility.command||Mac OS X of Apple|
In the first dialog all utilities are displayed.
Select: Update from archived pages.
With Next you get the configuration dialog: Update
You can save a updateing configuration in a Set. At first use the set default. With New you create a new set. Furthermore you can Rename or Delete a set with a pop-up menu.
The links to pages already archived are followed up by one or several start pages. Changed pages are stored in an update archive. Enter the URL for every start page in a new line.
There are restrictions at the link following of dynamic elements like Java-Skript and Flash.
Surf Set and Cache Archiv
The parameters of the Surf Set are used with the exception of Marker and Prefetch. Only that cache archive is updated which have the write access in the select surf set. The pages are updated by following of links in the cache archive. If the surf set only consists of one archive, then the links which are marked green are followed up (see Surf Set/Marker).
The updated pages and their new resources will be archived in this archive. The name of the update archive corresponds to the name of the cache archive to be updated with a name addition. The todays' date is per default used as an addition, this is indicated by a character pattern. The character pattern starts with the opening bracket [ and ends with a closening bracket ].
|yy||two-digit number for the year||06|
|MM||two-digit number for the month||03|
|dd||two-digit number for the day||21|
|HH||two-digit number for the hour||14|
|mm||two-digit number for the minutes||36|
|ww||two-digit number for the calendar week||40|
You can check the number of pages to be updated before the storage. To this you deactivate the update archive. With this result you can determine additional necessary start pages or you can indicate restrictions for the link following.
Pages only are archived if the update archive is activated.
The Utility MM3-Update updates all files which are older than the adjusted time of reuse.
You can set the reuse as relative or absolute time.
Examples are indicated in the two following tables.
|yyyy.MM.dd hh:mm||Date and Time||2008.08.19 10:30|
If you don't set the date completely, the todays' date and the time of day is used.
|..1 00:00||first day of the current month|
Some servers break off downloading files automatically. The files are requested in much faster consequence as this is carried out at the surfing. You therefore insert a waiting time, at which you let best vary these between a minimal and maximum waiting time.
All links followed up are logged per default.
|Log with||In a HTML page …|
|Contained resources||all contained resources|
|Not followed links||all not followed links|
In the summary you can log links not followed in addition.
Pages and resource occurring repeatedly are logged only once.
If too many pages are downloaded at a mirroring, you can prevent this with a filter so. You can define in a filter: domain, directory, file name, file or MIME types. With the additional parameter Follow the effect of the filter is controlled by the link following.
|Follow||Following or excluding link|
|Yes||Follow: If the link includes the character pattern of the filter.|
|No||Exclude: If the link includes the character pattern of the filter.|
|---||Disable: Filter isn't use.|
If both, Follow and Exclude, meet a link, then the link will be excluded and the page won't be downloaded.
The detailed structure of the filter is described: Filter for Following Links
Only pages are downloaded from the domain Proxy-Offline-Browser.com, however no pdf documents and pages from the folder /private/ and its subdirectories.
Please select, whether the link has to be followed, excluded or enquired generally.

You can configure the display as follows:
- Number of changed pages per report page.
- Number of signs which shall be displayed at a changed passage.
- Sorting sequence of the changed pages.
You can surf in a report. At the surfing the changes are shown to you. (Per default blue highlighted). At the online surfing all pages are stored in the update archives (not in the cache archiv).
You recognize this mode at the update symbol instead of the surf set symbol . If you click on the update symbol , then the update mode is finished. You reach the update mode at the call of a report. The called report determines the update archive and the surf set. If several reports are displayed at the same time, the report loaded last determines the update archive and the surf set. The used surf set is displayed at the main menu and the tool tip indicates the update archive.
With a click on the symbol for the synchronization all resources are copied into the corresponding cache archive. The copied domains are logged. After this you can delete the report and the update archive.
