           Summary: Add file name to output when using -q
           Product: LinkChecker
           Version: 4.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: checklink
        AssignedTo: ville.skytta@iki.fi
        ReportedBy: hanst@opera.com

Running checkling -qr <URI>, it seems the report for the different URI it
recurses through is separated with a line

----------------------------------------

But there's no way to identify which URI a problem occured in.

This makes -q less useful, as you'd have to grep the broken link URIs in your
entire collection of files to be able to find where it occurs.

I suggest prefixing the results for each URI with the actual URI, more similar
to grep -R output.

This information would make -q a lot more useful for those of us who don't want
to see all the download information, statements about what was completed, and
so on, while at the same want to easily locate broken links we need to fix.
