Check out fellow DC member Veign's donationware XSite software. I've used it to collect links from complex blog posts that I wanted to follow up on later.

do you just want to extract links on a single page, or on an entire site?
and you just want the links, not the entire site content?

there are some good tools for grabbing the entire content from a site (Teleport Pro, Offline Explorer).

and there are some good download managers (and probably firefox extensions) which can list all the links on a page from within your browser.

Also, Opera has a Link panel, which gives you all the links on a page, you can then search through them, but not save them all out it seems.

If you'd use a site link checker like Xeno then you'd get all the links in a site including which ones do no longer work.

@ mouser
I want to extract links inside entire site not just one page. I also want hiden links (links you can not see directly but you can access via search field inside that site for example) to be extracted too.

@ zridling
Veign's site is down. I can't access it. Is you have Xsite program please send me via email (steve_2000_robinson@yahoo.com).

Do you have any download link for Xenon?

@ zridling

thanks for the program but It only can extract links on the page I gave it to the program. It does not follow links. I want a program to follow all links and search all pages and extact all links in that pages. Simply all links in the entire site.

Xenu is great and could almost extract all links from a site but still not all hidden or redirected urls. Thanks justice for letting me know about this software. It solves my problem to some extend but I still need more power full software specially to show redirected links and follow all links untill to get to the bottom of them.

If you feel like playing around, you can try this web robot in VB.NET or C#.

You'd be surprised just how many really cool things are available for free at the CodeProject. :D

Steve, as mouser mentioned, you're looking for something more powerful then. The most accurate I've found is Teleport Pro.

I've found Teleport Pro to be very valuable. You'll have a hard time finding something that can automatically surf all your porn for you! :D

Edit: Yep - I know what you're using it for Zaine! :D

I am using either of these two programs, if I want to batch download files from rapidshare & other temp. hoster:
http://www.rapget.com/en/index.html
http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1111

http://translate.goo...dimonius.ru/dusd.php
http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1251

both still require you to manually put in the links, but after that, I can leave my computer on overnight, and the next day, all files are on my harddrive.

  Something like ScanDL that Searches HTML for links and constructs a file list?
