Should be fixed in next release:
The portable version of LinkChecker does not write the configuration file in the user directory anymore. So a user can use this version on a foreign system without leaving any traces behind.

Great news. Currently we don't have an actively developed or open source (in this case GPL) link checking program.

v 8.2 is out ... got a chance to test this finally. Works well and includes a command-line version (of which the program is really just a front-end for). Want to test this a bit more but I think this would do well in the database.

Sigh. Needless to say, I searched and nothing came up.

Merged.

Edit 1:

Ah, I was looking at the SF page:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/linkchecker/files/8.2/

This is all sorts of wrong.


Edit 2:

The softpedia thread helped me clear this up: 8.2 is the only thing listed as portable:
http://www.softpedia.com/publisher/Bast ... 75702.html
... while 9.3 (installer) is available from the home page.

Sigh.
