This little tool has been kicking around on my harddrive for a month or
two now, so time to release!

I'm pleased to announce the first release of urlcheck, an parallel link
checker, written in Haskell.

Frustrated with the resources and time consumed by 'linkchecker', when
preparing the weekly news, I coded up a lightweight, smp-capable
replacement in Haskell.  urlcheck pings urls found in the input file,
checking they aren't 404s. 

It uses Haskell threads to run queries concurrently, and can
transparently utilise multiple cores if you have them.


        $ urlcheck urlcheck.html
        Found 0 broken links. Checked 10 links (10 unique) in 1 file.
        Search time: 5 secs

Get it from Hackage!
