web external link
If you have a web site and want to make evident the hypertextual
links pointing from your site to another site that is considered
external, welman can do this work automatically for you.
Welman makes evident the external links embedded in the pages of a web site by inserting of a marker image just after the link text. The marker image is selected by the user and usually is a small icon (i.e. ). The program can also check the status of each external link and set two different markers selected by the user: one for ok status and one for broken status (i.e. and ).
At present, external links are considered those links that have an href url with a non empty network location (blue text): i.e. http://foo.bar/anydoc.html .
||Clean marked files. Remove any marking icon introduced by -m or -s options. Conflicts with -m and -s options. Implies -f option.|
||Ignore pages last modify time. Visit them anyway.|
||Print help text.|
||External link marker icon. MARK: the file name of the icon inserted by the program just after the external link to mark it. Conflicts with -c option.|
|-s MARK_BRK||External link status check. For each external link, verify its status (reachable or broken) and set properly its marker icon: the normal icon for a reachable link or the broken link icon otherwise. MARK_BRK: the file name of the icon substituted to the normal icon when a link is checked as broken. Conflicts with -c option. Implies -f option.|
||Quiet. Suppress normal output
messaging, keep error messages.
||Recursive. Process given file(s) in the given directory and then do the same recursively for all subdirectories.|
||Set verbosity level, which type of logged messages that are also copied to program terminal. Levels: 0 no msg, 1 fatals (F), 2 F+errs (E), 3 F+E+warns (W), 4 E+W+normal msg [default=1].|
