chklinks is a small program that checks if links on a webpage are working and reports broken links.
I started to develop it when I noticed that several websites I was maintaining contained lots of broken links. Instead of manually checking all links on each page, I developed this program to do it automatically.
chklinks has been developed for UNIX-based systems, but is only tested on Linux and *BSD.
- recent UNIX-based system (Linux or *BSD will do)
- a C compiler
Run configure to detect the environment and to create the Makefile:
# make install
The latest version was released on 31 march 2007: chklinks-20070331.tar.gz
A development snapshot can be found in SVN.
The CheckLinksManual contains all documentation needed to use chklinks.
