Hi, thanks; but that sounds like a different (more link-inclusive) feature from this one.

Note that discussion on the details for this feature will be taking place on the new Wgiki: http://wget.addictivecode.org/FeatureSpecifications/JavaScript.

I don't think I would want to build in an option to blindly grab all links, but it'd make a good plugin for after we've added the plugin infrastructure (JavaScript support will also be a plugin).

Suggest to use regular expression parser and to look for links inside all HTML or text content, not only inside <script> tag. Duplicate links will be removed.

This will need some more discussion: how far do we want to go with this?
