About the Page Links To Scraping Tool
The purpose of this tool is to allow a fast and easy to scrape links from a web page. Listing links, domains and resources that a page links to can tell you a lot about the page. Reasons for using a tool such as this are wide ranging; from Internet research, web page development to security assessments and web page testing.
The tool has been built with a simple and well known command line tool Lynx. This is a text based web browser popular on Linux based operating systems.
Lynx can also be used for troubleshooting and testing web pages from the command line. Being a text based browser you will not be able to view graphics obviously, however it is handy tool for reading text based pages.

Select Web Page to Scrape
Enter a valid url into the form and that page will be downloaded by our system. The HTML will then be analyzed and URL’s will be extracted from the results. This technique is otherwise known as scraping.
Scraped Page Results
The results are displayed in a list of url’s. There is a link icon on the left that allows for a quick access to the valid link. Note this will take you to the selected URL, it does not initiate a scrape of that page. To perform additional scraping, copy and paste your desired URL into the form and repeat the process.
The Lynx command that we have used for this dump of what a page links to is:
lynx -listonly -dump url.example.com
