LinkController is a system for checking links.

Most HTML pages contain references to other HTML pages (links). These allow the readers of those pages to locate other related resources (web pages etc.). Unfortunately the location of `resources' (1) can change, resources can disappear completely or the system providing the resource can break. When this happens, the link which used to find them will no longer work. The only reliable way to detect this problem is to periodically check over the resources and take corrective action for the ones that have gone missing.

LinkController is designed to make that task much more efficient. It automates the task of checking which links have been broken for a period of time and then of finding which documents they occur in.

LinkController is copyrighted software and is distributed under the GNU Public License which should have been included as the file `COPYING' in the distribution.
