Will the link checker download the file of the link when I am using GET ?

Hi all ,

    I am now using 3.6.2.3 and is using the method GET. I think that it 
would download the whole file when it check each link (as opposed to HEAD). 
But I use a testing file with an <a href> pointing to a very large file, but 
it can be completed very quickly. So I am not quite sure about if I am 
right. Please advise.

    Thanks.

Perseus
