       ht://Check - Web site checker for dead/external links 2.0.0


       htcheck [-isvk] [-c configfile] [-D dbname]


       ht://Check  is  more  than a link checker.  It is a console application
       written for Linux systems in C++ and derived from ht://Dig.

       It can retrieve information through HTTP/1.1 and store the  information
       in a MySQL database, and it is particularly suitable for small Internet
       domains or Intranet.

       Its purpose is to help a webmaster manage one or  more  related  sites:
       after  a  "crawl",  ht://Check  gives  back  very  useful summaries and
       reports, including broken links, anchors not found,  content-types  and
       HTTP status codes summaries, etc.

       From  version  1.2.3,  ht://Check also performs accessibility checks in
       accordance with the principles of  the  University  of  Toronto’s  Open
       Accessibility  Checks  (OAC)  project, allowing users to discover site-
       wide barriers like images without proper alternatives, missing  titles,

       ht://Check  can  also  be used for Web structure analysis, as it stores
       information regarding links between HTML documents.
