extended like 192.168.1.100 depending on your subnet.
quoted multi line parameters are supported in scripts
using full trim. type "sfk script" for details.
although sfk wget can download a list of URLs, it is not
a real webpage downloader/archiver, as this would require
the conversion of html pages to adapt contained links.
