Linkrot scans a site for inaccessible links (http error 404, 500, etc.) and saves a log with bad links that you can open in Excel. It's a Windows console application developed in C# (.NET 2.0 stack). Simple, single thread crawling for dead links, broken links, dangling links.

All links are written to Links.txt. Bad links are written to Error.txt.
Tab delimited, includes run time and content type for fetched links.

  Use:             linkrot.exe <url>
  Example:         linkrot.exe http://www.linkrot.be/
  Example:         linkrot.exe http://www.linkrot.be/ >> logfile.txt

  Error level -1:  Parameter fault, given url is not accessible.
  Error level  0:  All went well, no bad links found.
  Error level  1:  Bad links found, see error log for details.
