This repository will contain a lot of markdown documents and maybe some json or txt files.

We need a small script in any language that you like that scraps all the files and checks for broken links (404).

This task is not hard, the script will take no more than 100 lines, maybe it can be done in 5 lines depending on the programming language.

We will use the small script to automate the deployment of new manuals.

If you know PHP

I know this library does the job and here is a sample script that actually used it.

Note: There other libraries in other languages if you search for "broken link checker" or something like that.

Can I work on this? Also, should the script search the text and json files or just the markdown?
