download documentation as HTML (not PDF)

I like to keep a local copy of this: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/

But the only way I see to download the whole thing is by PDF.

Anyone seen a downlodable tarball of all of the HTML files? (or
should I just use wget recursive to spider-grab it?)

TIP 5: Have you checked our extensive FAQ?

That's what I ended up doing.

wget -np -m http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/interactive/

The HTML documentation is included in the source code tarballs and is
installed in /usr/local/pgsql/doc or some analogous location.

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

Found it, thanks.
apt-get install postgresql-doc


FreeBSD ports, too!

cd /usr/ports/databases/postgresql-docs ; make install

Thanks for the tip! This is great.

BTW, in RPM-based distributions, the main postgresql RPM has the
HTML doc set; it's customarily installed in
/usr/share/doc/postgresql-VERSION/html/
