Ability to download multiple sets of code from webpages, complete sites, and/or software

Without at all taking copyrighted material, and for research purposes only, how does one download the source code for existing websites regardless of the code type and be able to regenerate to see what snippets do what - the platform used to do a particular operation.  It is clear that any programming language out there that is unique is used by large companies WITH LARGE TEAMS OF ATTORNEYS SUING for people and companies taking their intellectual property

THAT IS NOT THE PURPOSE....

I am a project manager for this research task - I have a modicum amount of knowledge in information systems.

I’ve never learned to truly code a SINGLE LANGUAGE and yet obtained a masters in MI (mgmt. info sys). Go figure.

However, I am starting to learn WordPress because that is what the project relates to.

In addition the research project and the results are for a non-profit company that has not a single goal of doing anything but what they are doing ... and that is allowing small businesses to use resources and have a means to grow their business, employ more people, offer healthcare, increase wages, provide retirement plans, and expand - ultimately growing the U.S. economy and we have a few city pilots in which are doing this in and this particular project comprises about 5% of the consulting/products and services being offered to the companies that become members in the pilot cities.

Sorry to be so long and seemingly lack of cohesiveness in this question/post because I could not ask for something and not say why

    You would contact the site owner and request a copy. Anything other than that is almost guaranteed to be illegal as soon as it goes past the rendered page source that browsers interpret.

    You probably shouldn't be posting an e-mail address like you did. Public fprums like this are common targets for harvesting addresses. Worse, if what you wrote is accurate, you gave a significant amount of info about the user of the e-mail address is all about and that's good stuff for social engineering.

    Mostly by visiting a site, right click, and using the view source, you will only get the HTML code for rendering that page. To see their actual code that references data bases, payment processing, login validation you would need to contact their webmaster. Most likely they will not be allowed to give you their code due to company policies.
    Is there some particular feature you are looking at? We can point you to some good tutorial sites.
