Is there a tool to get a list of links on a web page?

I want a list of links on some pages.  It would love to have a two column list with the link name on the left & the actual URL on the right, but a plain text list of link names would do.  

How could I get this without editing the page itself?

I could write you a bookmarklet if you want
A link on the link bar you can click to get the list you want.
Would that be what you were thinking about?

Or is this on your page?

Add

<script>
window.onload=function() {
  var links = document.links;
  var html = "<table>";
  for (var i=0,n=links.length;i<n;i++) {
    if (links[i].href!="") html += '<tr><td>'+
     links[i].textContent+
    '</td><td>'+links[i].href+
    '</td></tr>';
  }
  html +='</table>';
  var linksDiv = document.createElemen('div');
  linksDiv.style.height='250px';
  linksDiv.style.overflow='scroll';
  document.body.insertBefore(linksDiv,document.body.firstChild);
}
</script>

})()

After I do that, then how do I add it to my links bar?

I made the changes you suggested, then removed all the line breakes and pasted it into the URL for a bookmark.  I get no response from clicking on the bookmark.

Sorry, forgot the double quotes and to add the innerHTML

Here

http://jsfiddle.net/mplungjan/GEPdP/
Drag the link in the bottom right field off to the links bar

And here is the code

<a href="javascript:(function() {var links = document.links;var html = '<table>';for (var i=0,n=links.length;i<n;i++) { if (links[i].href!='') html += '<tr><td>'+links[i].textContent+'</td><td>'+links[i].href+'</td></tr>';} html +='</table>';var linksDiv = document.createElement('div'); linksDiv.style.height='250px';linksDiv.style.width='500px'; linksDiv.style.position='absolute';linksDiv.style.top='0';linksDiv.style.zIndex=99999;linksDiv.style.overflow='scroll';linksDiv.innerHTML=html;document.body.insertBefore(linksDiv,document.body.firstChild);
})()">AllLinks</a>

This is almost exactly what I need!  The only problem is how do I get this info off the screen into a text format of any kind?  I can't read it with the transparent background or use the info anywhere else as it displays now.

Can you have it create a separate HTML file, like the "Search Links" bookmarklet does at https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/pagelinks.html#search_links

1) add
linksDiv.style.background='white';
to get rid of the transparency
2)
change

var linksDiv = document.createElement('div'); linksDiv.style.height='250px';linksDiv.style.width='500px'; linksDiv.style.position='absolute';linksDiv.style.top='0';linksDiv.style.zIndex=99999;linksDiv.style.overflow='scroll';linksDiv.innerHTML=html;document.body.insertBefore(linksDiv,document.body.firstChild);
to
var w=window.open('','_blank');if (w) {w.document.write(html);w.document.close()}

to get all the links in a new window

Right now the table will take on the CSS of the parent page

YES!!!!

Many Thanks!!  

I'll give you more points if you can make the URL texts into real links in the output that open the linked pages into a new tab.
