It took me ages and three runs of Xenu to eradicate all the "navigator.pl"-links that -- while working -- created the erroneous links. I would have needed some additional back step in the error report:

      Search it and press ALT-ENTER

      Yeah, that part sucks. I should replace this with a normal big text box
      some day.

      >Actually, I have already problems dealing with the 15 or so exclusions I use and have some trouble managing my Xenu.ini file (about 1900 lines by now). Is there a description of the specifics of this file somewhere? Most of the syntax can be guessed, but the connection between the [Recent URL List] and the specific inclusions and exclusions isn't quite clear to me.

      No, you should guess :-) [Recent URL List] is for the combo box. There
      is also a general include / exclude in the ini file, and there are the
      same with an URL in it, these are URL-specific.

      My own Xenu.ini file is 300K.

      Tricky indeed.

      Sure, simply exclude http://purl.org . Maybe I asnwered that last time.

      I'm not the moderator :)
