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.
-v Verbose mode (more ’v’s increment verbosity)
-s Statistics (broken links, etc...) available
-i Initialize the database (drop a previous db)
-k Initialize the database (drop tables, keep the db)
