Rawler is a Ruby library that crawls your website and checks the status code for each of your links. Useful for finding dead links.
Rawler will only parse pages with content type 'text/html', but it will check for the response code of every link.
rawler http://example.com [options]
where [options] are: --username, -u <s>: HTTP Basic Username --password, -p <s>: HTTP Basic Password --wait, -w <f>: Seconds to wait between requests, may be fractional e.g. '1.5' (default: 3.0) --log, -l: Log results to file rawler_log.txt --logfile, -o <s>: Specify logfile, implies --log (default: rawler_log.txt) --css, -c: Check CSS links --skip, -s <s>: Skip URLs that match a regexp --iskip, -i <s>: Skip URLs that match a case insensitive regexp --include <s>: Only include URLs that match a regexp --iinclude <s>: Only include URLs that match a case insensitive regexp --local <s>: Restrict to the given URL and below. Equivalent to '--include ^http://mysite.com/*'. --ignore_fragments: Strips any fragment from parsed links --version, -v: Print version and exit --help, -h: Show this message
