Using either URLs or flat files, this program attempts to validate web pages according to their own DTD.
This program can be used in several ways to validate web pages. It will take a root URL and crawl the website from the root and validate every page it finds below it, it can test named URLs only. Given a root local directory it will traverse the directory tree and validate every HTML file it finds, it will test a single file or a list of files. In short it tries to validate web pages.
Given a root URL will traverse the website, validating all pages found that are below the root URL. Thus external links and those outside of the root URL are ignored.
Given a single URL will validating the current page only.
The given file should contain a list of URLs (one per line), which will then be validated. Note that only the links listed are validated, no crawling of the links within the page is performed.
Given a root directory will traverse the directory tree and validate every .html or .htm file it finds.
Validates a single file.
The given file should contain a list of files (one per line), which will then be validated.
The given file should contain patterns (one per line) used to ignore URLs and files (e.g. user login) from validation.
By default mailto links and various document and binary file formats are ignored, together with any none 'http' protocol.
