This manual page documents the gurlchecker command.

gurlchecker is a graphical web link checker. It searches URLs in a whole site, a single local page or a browser bookmarks page, checking them, one by one, in order to know their validity. Furthermore, it can manage entire projects.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-h, --help

Show summary of options.

-v, --version

Show version of program.

-u, --http-user

User name for HTTP Basic Authentication.

-p, --http-passwd

Password for HTTP Basic Authentication.

-A, --no-urls-args

Ignore URLs arguments.

With this option gurlchecker will systematically remove arguments on URLs. It is useful to avoid nasty infinite loops when arguments are randomly generated, for example.
