Guido is not talking about the same wget -r I think
I expected something like this

def hook(url):print(url)
def dir(url):
    with urllib.request.urlopen(url) as f:
        for u in f:
            if m:
                if t[-1]=='/': dir(t)
                    if d=='': d='./'
                    if not os.path.exists(d):

How do I get rit of 33:
