checklink - check the validity of links in an HTML or XHTML document

This manual page documents briefly the checklink command, a.k.a. the W3CX Link Checker. checklink is a program that reads an HTML or XHTML document, extracts a list of anchors and links and checks that no anchor is defined twice and that all the links are dereferenceable, including the fragments. It warns about HTTP redirects, including directory redirects, and can check recursively a part of a web site. The program can be used either as a command line tool or as a CGI script.
checklink uses the libwww-perl library which has a number of environment variables affecting its behaviour. See "SEE ALSO" for some pointers. W3C_CHECKLINK_CFG If set, overrides the path to the configuration file.
The documentation for this program is available on the web at <http://validator.w3.org/docs/checklink.html>. LWP, Net::FTP, Net::NNTP, Net::IP, perlre.
