Tool which extracts web pages from hard drive

and imports to a text file

I'm looking for a tool which will extract all html files from a folder on the local hard drive (folder being named mysite.com) and will extract all pages out of the folder and write them to a text file: [mysite.com...] [mysite.com...] etc.

Is there such a program or script out there. This would be a great time saver when doing the cross linking thing.

Assuming you're using Windoze and you just want a text list of the files in a folder, DOS or a command prompt will do it for you using redirects.

dir *.html /b > filenames.txt

The "/b" switch gives a bare listing, no file date/size et al. The ">" redirects the output to the file you specify.

Add a "/o" switch to set sort order or a "/s" to include subdirectories.
