WWW::Link::Tester::Complex - a careful tester for broken links


    use WWW::Link::Test::Complex
    WWW::Link::Test::Complex::test_link($ua, $link);


This is a link testing module based on the work of Phil Mitchell at Harvard College. The aim is to test very carefully if a link is really there.

N.B. I have done the minimum reasonable edits on the file so that any later improvements can be easily added. This means that the module contains and sections of code which are not relevant to LinkController.


This system should be controlled by the robot logic of the user agent it uses provided that the robot returns a 4xx response code.

test_link ^

This function acts as glue between follow_url and LinkController. It returns a constructed HTTP::Response. This will mean that information is lost since we actually often have created the code from another response.
