Is there an off line version of Wikipedia?

Thank you for responding to my email. What I meant is downloadable copy. Sometimes I don't always have internet access so I thought it would be nice to have a searchable database of all the wikipedia artcles on laptop.

Offline?  As in a downloadable copy of the entire wikipedia site?

Or the wiki part itself?  If you want the wiki part, that's available as
mediawiki and should be in the repository I would think.
