Checks to see if a file at a specified URL has been changed
'checkurls' is a program to help people who are interested in multiple files on Internet and want to spend less time checking for updates. It takes a list of URLs, downloads the files at these URLs, compares these with the old files, and if something has changed it sends an email to the user with a patch.
