I have a gigantic website that has several dead links. I know there are plenty more that I haven't found yet. I also know that there is software that will automate this task of looking for dead-links.

Rather than downloading the first link of apparent crapware from Google, does anyone have a recommended software?

Thanks for the help.

or import a PHP file into all your files that reports broken links

Anyone else?

I think MetaProducts has an app that does/did this in part (actually downloads whole sites, but can report dead links). I used it once a few years ago. It's on of their Offline Explorers.

I looked it up, there is a function from C that is used in php called readlink() - it returns false if there is an error.

there is a firefox plugin that lets u over over a link and see where it goes but that would be burdensome.
similarly, using getright to checkout all the links would be possible and u may be able to automate it to avoid it being burdensome
