Need a way to check a web sites cacheability status - from inside a c# script.
Posted on 2009-12-26
I have a C# script, I need to enter some code into the C# script that will take a URL and
test all the embedded HTML object in that URL and give me a readable (XML) response
about which objects are cacheable and which are not, including the file size and content type of each file.
Using C# to run an external application is also fine, and even a CGI application (Though I don't like CGI).
There was a tool called cacheability on the internet once, you could also download a command line version of it.
The tool was put down, and replaced with Redbot, the problem with Redbot is that it doesn't respond using an XML,
but rather HTML code which will need heavy parsing to use.
If anyone has an idea for an application or maybe a simple way to check it, I'll be glad to hear.
