Re: Building recursive list of URLs, no page downloading

Wget would probably be a better bet as it has recursive things built into it.
Dunno how it would handle the cookies and such like tho.

You could do it all with curl, but you would have to build a script around it to process the pages as they download to get the links out of it.

>>> curl_at_davidcross.com 30/01/03 8:52:16 am >>>
I need to spider thousands of URLs at our company's websites to see how
many URLs there are there for the move to our new CMS.

Access to some sections of the websites are user/pass restricted and
authentication is performed through cookies, not standard HTTP/auth. so it
is essential that I can load cookie/s into this program.

Also, I do not need to actually download the URL, just note its URL and
move onto the next URL linked from the first page.

Not sure whether there is a way in curl, or perhaps wget?

Thanks for any suggestions,

David
