Description brutzman 2007-12-15 01:39:32 UTC
need url link checker to verify that resources are each available.  this capability does not need to be tied to any
specific file type, rather it should be accessible via the text editor.
Comment 1 Vitezslav Stejskal 2007-12-19 10:06:22 UTC
Hi, thanks for this RFE. Could you please elaborate more on what kind of URLs should be checked and what the checking
should look like. Thanks
Comment 2 brutzman 2007-12-28 01:45:23 UTC
Primary use case is checking the links in an html file, making sure that they point to an actual resource.  These might
be local files, http:// https:// file:// ftp:// sftp:// mailto: etc.

Same authoring issue can arise with Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics files and other XML files.

Example link checkers:

- w3c link checker (simply providing connection to this service might be a good start)

- Xenu's link sleuth

Not sure I understand what the exact request is, but what I would welcome is especially a checker for relative URLs. E.g. if I have:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">

the IDE should check that css/main.css exists within a project, and if not, it should display a warning (possibly with the option to create it).
