Distlinks checks URL links in various file types and directory tree of files. An SQLite database holds previous check results to avoid re-checking in multiple program runs. Various URL forms and free-form text are recognised. It's a bit rough yet, but is good for checking whole trees of files or a software distribution such as a .tar.gz. See the (7k, html) for more.

Distlinks is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or higher).

Download version 11 source here or from CPAN, or a Debian package here or from my repo.

distlinks-11.tar.gz (40k, and sig)
distlinks_11-0.1_all.deb (21k, and sig)

The sig files are Gnu PG ascii armoured signatures generated from my key. There's a SIGNATURE file inside the .tar.gz for cpansign too.

The META.yml or Makefile.PL has the dependencies (a slightly long list, on the principle "why can't someone else do it"). The key ones are Perl 5.10 or up, DBI with SQLite, and WWW::Mechanize.
