       cewl - custom word list generator


       cewl [OPTION] ... URL


       CeWL  (Custom  Word  List  generator)  is  a  ruby  app which spiders a given URL, up to a
       specified depth, and returns a list of words which can then be used for password  crackers
       such as John the Ripper. Optionally, CeWL can follow external links.

       CeWL  can  also  create  a  list  of  email  addresses  found in mailto links. These email
       addresses can be used as usernames in brute force actions.

       CeWL is pronounced "cool".
