            urlcheck: a multithreaded, parallel url checker


    urlcheck is lightweight, concurrent url checker. It uses minimal resources,
    and is multicore-capable.

    In contrast to popular link checkers, it uses few resources, will readily
    take advantage of multiple cores, and is easily killable.

An example:

    $ urlcheck content.wiki
    Found 0 broken links. Checked 31 links (31 unique) in 1 file.
    Search time: 30 secs

    runhaskell Setup.lhs configure --prefix=/home/dons
    runhaskell Setup.lhs build
    runhaskell Setup.lhs install


    $ urlcheck --help
    Usage: checkuri [-h] [-n n] [file ...]
      -h    --help  Show this help message
      -n N          Number of concurrent connections (default 16)

urlcheck takes a list of files to check on the command line. It uses 16
concurrent threads by default. You can configure these threads to use
multiple cores, with GHC 6.6, by setting:

    +RTS -N 16 -RTS

on the command line arguments to urlcheck.
