Tool for searching site's code?
Which tool I can use in order to search an online website for a code?

Let's say that I want to search http://www.example.com for the code
<a href="mailto:

I would like to get all the URLs which contain this code.

Is there any tool available for doing this?

[edit reason] switch to example.com - it can never be owned [/edit]

Such a tool a)likely exists and b)wouldn't be welcomed by the majority of webmasters if it was automated.

You can set your browser up to very quickly check each page one by one manually. It would be as simple as pressing "control F", entering your desired code and then clicking around the site while pressing the "next" button of your search control box.

I'm just looking for a search engine, such as google, that can find HTML code inside a site.

Something like a query for: site:example.com incode:<a href="http://www.example.com">

I'll need a specific way to find such a tool as I've searched for hours and couldn't find one...

Would appreciate any help. If such a tool doesn't exist - I'm sure it would make a great link bait. Any volunteers? :)

I've looked several times but have never found such a tool.
