A very basic erlang Crawler

1.Save the code below as spyder.erl

2.Run as : erl spyder.erl  -s spyder start http://site_to_crawl.com -s init stop


This is a very crude crawler – will crawl all the links in a page, and then further. It doesn’t protect you from black holes, and will crawl away without concern for robots.txt. Just something to brush up my rusty(probably visible in the code ?) erlang. But what the hell – it works ! Feel free to improve on it :)

    I’ve been searching on the web trying to find ideas on how to get my personal blog site coded, your present style and theme are wonderful. Did you code it your self or did you recruit a coder to get it done for you personally?
