lynx-dev Link verification (akin to Traversal thread)

Reading one of the recent posts on -traversal issues led me to a question
that may or may not have been asked in the same (or similar) way:
I would like to occasionally put my (rather large) lynx_bookmarks.html
into a program/script/etc. that would produce another text specifying the
result of going to the link.  In other words, whether it got to a page,
got a 404 error, etc.  I was looking at the WGET page referenced from the
Links section at, and I am not quite sure if it would do
what I want.

My personal preference would be a text file that looks something like:              OK           404:FILE NOT FOUND

but just about anything close to that would be of much help.
Would wget do something like this?  Or should I be looking at a different

(Being able to press a key in Lynx to do it on the page currently being
displayed would be VERY nice too... :) )
