First I should mention the version.
$ checklink --version
W3C checklink Revision: 2.86 (c) 1999-2001 W3C
GET file://localhost/home/jidanni/--version  fetched in 0.0s

Error: 404 File `/home/jidanni/--version' does not exist
$ bin/checklink -version
$ 

OK, never mind that.

Anyways, my dream is I want to analyze the internal links in my tree
of html files on my disk.

$ checklink -r -l . index.html

the -l does not do what I thought, limit the checking to just the tree
starting at . on my hard disk.  It still tries to go out onto the
network to check those links too, although I do not wish to connect my
modem at this time.  I just want it to check my internal links.

GET
file://localhost/home/jidanni/mywebsites/europa.affordablehost.com/data/index.html
fetched in 0.0s

why does it insist in digging up the $PWD names, and not just use
./index.html etc.?  Can't it be told to "get relative"?
