    Default checking a database of links

    hi,<BR><BR>i need to develop a script that can check a url to see whether it is valid or not. a major issue will be the number of links ~15000. I intend to run the script at night, flagging the broken links.<BR><BR>is this beyond the scope of asp? should i go for the perl option instead.

    no, VBScript has enough functionality to effectively parse a URL string in order to validate it. Your main issue is the fact that you could be hitting your DB a lot or for longer periods of time. But 15,000 records is a really small number anyway plus you are doing it at night which must be a low volume time for you.<BR><BR>HTh,<BR><BR>geeoff<BR>
