Xenu's Link Sleuth

What is Xenu's Link Sleuth?

Xenu, or Xenu's Link Sleuth, is a computer program that checks websites for broken hyperlinks. Link Sleuth runs on Microsoft Windows. Link verification is performed on links which appear in %3Ca%3E tags, as well as images, frames, plug-ins, backgrounds, local image maps, style sheets, scripts and Java applets. The program follows links to other pages, and checks the links on those pages also, so it is possible to check an entire site for broken links in one session.
