Excellent script. Out of all the searching I have done, this is the only script I have found that checks server response codes for a list of URLs and reports the results in a well presented HTML file complete with categorisation according to the server response. Works faultlessly. I have written a basic user guide at http://journalxtra.com/2010/02/how-to-check-for-dead-links/ Thank you for developing this program. Now all I need to do is find or write a script to check a text list of URL target pages for a specific link.
