Automatically checks for broken links

LinkCheck automates checking a Web site for broken links. It creates a report of broken links, download times, and every link and FTP connection on the site. It is handy for Web designers who need to check over their site, but can also be installed as a CGI program so Web designers can check via a Web page. It understands HTML 3.0, frames, and JavaScript, and automatically checks mailto links for validity. It can check an entire site, or just subdirectories. It flags pages that are particularly slow to download. It reports server types and the date a file was last modified, and validates and reports temporarily moved pages while checking the new location.
