    I could be wrong but most if not all site-rippers are not able to pull server side scripts, so any php or scripting that occurs to render the page is inaccessible to site rippers

    I use it on linux.

    You dump the website to your hard disk (using wget with a switch), then sed, awk or homegrown script your way to provide a nice clean text file with a detailed directory map of the website. If that's what you're after. But you've essentially cloned the website to your machine, and as such can extract whatever data you want...
