Batch Scan (File menu)
Use this option to load a file specifying the files and/or URLs to scan
When choosing this menu option, you are prompted for the "Batch File" to load. This file contains instructions for SiteMapper about which files to download, and where to store them. It also allows you to process a number of local files through a local Internet server such as IIS.
The specified file is loaded and each line is processed:
If the first character is a "#" (hash/window) character, the line contains a parameter. Currently the following parameters are supported:
Specifies a subdirectory to store the output. Note that this path must either be fully qualified (ie drive:\path\) or specify a single subdirectory name. If the subdirectory does not exist in the cache, it is created.
Specifies the base URL (URI) to use when parsing local filespecs. This enables you to first set the URL path cabable of processing the files found in the filespec. For example, to process all ASP files in a directory and store the generated HTML output, you can set the url to the IIS path (virtual directory) and then specify the local Windows path containing the files, including a filemask.
If the line is not a comment or a parameter, it is assumed to be a URL or filespec, and the file is added to the list of URLs to add. If a single URL or file is specifed, the file is downloaded (or loaded directly from the filesystem) and scanned.
If a filespec contains the * (asterix) character, all files matching the filespec are added to the list.
For URLs, each URL must be fully qualified and reference a single document.
Please see the Batch Example for further information. You can save this text-file to your filesystem, and then edit the file with a text-editor to create your own Batch scanning procedures.
