- 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!).
