"""Web tree checker.

This utility is handy to check a subweb of the world-wide web for
errors.  A subweb is specified by giving one or more ``root URLs''; a
page belongs to the subweb if one of the root URLs is an initial
prefix of it.

File URL extension:

In order to easy the checking of subwebs via the local file system,
the interpretation of ``file:'' URLs is extended to mimic the behavior
of your average HTTP daemon: if a directory pathname is given, the
file index.html in that directory is returned if it exists, otherwise
a directory listing is returned.  Now, you can point webchecker to the
document tree in the local file system of your HTTP daemon, and have
most of it checked.  In fact the default works this way if your local
web tree is located at /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdpcs (the default for
the NCSA HTTP daemon and probably others).

Report printed:

When done, it reports pages with bad links within the subweb.  When
interrupted, it reports for the pages that it has checked already.

In verbose mode, additional messages are printed during the
information gathering phase.  By default, it prints a summary of its
work status every 50 URLs (adjustable with the -r option), and it
reports errors as they are encountered.  Use the -q option to disable
this output.

Checkpoint feature:

Whether interrupted or not, it dumps its state (a Python pickle) to a
checkpoint file and the -R option allows it to restart from the
checkpoint (assuming that the pages on the subweb that were already
processed haven't changed).  Even when it has run till completion, -R
can still be useful -- it will print the reports again, and -Rq prints
the errors only.  In this case, the checkpoint file is not written
again.  The checkpoint file can be set with the -d option.

The checkpoint file is written as a Python pickle.  Remember that
Python's pickle module is currently quite slow.  Give it the time it
needs to load and save the checkpoint file.  When interrupted while
writing the checkpoint file, the old checkpoint file is not
overwritten, but all work done in the current run is lost.


- You may find the (Tk-based) GUI version easier to use.  See wcgui.py.

- Webchecker honors the "robots.txt" convention.  Thanks to Skip
Montanaro for his robotparser.py module (included in this directory)!
The agent name is hardwired to "webchecker".  URLs that are disallowed
by the robots.txt file are reported as external URLs.

- Because the SGML parser is a bit slow, very large SGML files are
skipped.  The size limit can be set with the -m option.

- When the server or protocol does not tell us a file's type, we guess
it based on the URL's suffix.  The mimetypes.py module (also in this
directory) has a built-in table mapping most currently known suffixes,
and in addition attempts to read the mime.types configuration files in
the default locations of Netscape and the NCSA HTTP daemon.

- We follow links indicated by <A>, <FRAME> and <IMG> tags.  We also
honor the <BASE> tag.

- We now check internal NAME anchor links, as well as toplevel links.

- Checking external links is now done by default; use -x to *disable*
this feature.  External links are now checked during normal
processing.  (XXX The status of a checked link could be categorized
better.  Later...)

- If external links are not checked, you can use the -t flag to
provide specific overrides to -x.

Usage: webchecker.py [option] ... [rooturl] ...


-R        -- restart from checkpoint file
-d file   -- checkpoint filename (default %(DUMPFILE)s)
-m bytes  -- skip HTML pages larger than this size (default %(MAXPAGE)d)
-n        -- reports only, no checking (use with -R)
-q        -- quiet operation (also suppresses external links report)
-r number -- number of links processed per round (default %(ROUNDSIZE)d)
-t root   -- specify root dir which should be treated as internal (can repeat)
-v        -- verbose operation; repeating -v will increase verbosity
-x        -- don't check external links (these are often slow to check)
-a        -- don't check name anchors


rooturl   -- URL to start checking
             (default %(DEFROOT)s)
