Gen Tree
This Perl script scans the tree (better: the directed graph) of HTML pages of a web site (it's not always a tree because circles and loops are possible!), starting at the home page of that site and following all hyperlinks in a recursive descent (you can also scan just a sub-tree of your web site if you want). Circles and loops are recognized through unique identification of each page by the device and i-node numbers of its corresponding file. When scanning of the web site is complete, an HTML page is generated which contains all the pages found in form of one hyperlink to each of them. The tree structure of the web site is reflected in this page by the indentation of these hyper-links. The text which is displayed in these hyperlinks is extracted from the <TITLE> ... </TITLE> tags inside the corresponding page. The script is capable of executing server side includes and of analyzing server side image maps. This way, no important hyperlinks are missed (many home pages consist of an image map and nothing else!). It is also able to analyze CGI scripts simply by calling them and analyzing their output (therefore, no HTTP server is needed!). Contact Steffen Beyer for more info.
