Does anyone know where I can get a free script or program
that can list info it finds for a given URL or address?

Eg.
prompt> spider http://where.com/files

and have it index and record what it finds at that address and whatever is underneath it.

It should be for Unix or Linux.

Thanks.

All those sites are for garbage windows software.  I need a script or program for a real OS.  Sorry.

Thanks, but they're primarily for index local directories, not crawling web sites.

Is this something similar to the "web-crawling" question in the CGI topic area? If so, it should not be too hard to make a perl script to do what you are asking. You'll also need to provide more information (see my questions under that topic).

See: http://WWW.InContext.COM
for the InContext "Spider" software.
Not quite $0.00, but under $99.

InContext also markets a "crawler".

Thanks,but I can't even find it on the site.   It's probably too much cash anyway.

The InContext software is named "FlashSite".
That URL contains the text:
