Project Description

The idea: a 'tool' that checks the web for broken links & sends the owner of a website a mail when it found one

Steps:
1. a script that follows every link it finds and registers when a link is broken (status 404 and only external links)
2. it inserts the data into a database (e.g. microsoft access) - the data needed would be:
2.1 the url of the page where it found the broken links
2.2 the url of the broken page (status 404)
2.3 a mail address it found on the contact page
3. in the database, it checks if a mail has been sent before - if not, it sends a 'template' e-mail containing the needed data
