checklink question / feature request

On the assumption that I've not overlooked a current facility, is
there any possibility of having the page title printed in the checklink
report? I'm not a perl programmer, but that doesn't sound too complex a

My need is to be able to distinguish between reports on pages on the
basis of the content of the <title> tag.  I.e. to be able to ignore
some and look at others.

The ideal way would be to have checklink not check certain files in the
first place, perhaps by having a (large) list of excluded URIs read from
a file that I could create, before checking, on the basis of the title.
This would require an exclude-from-file option.

However, a simpler option would be for me to ignore the report on the
basis of the page title printed in the report.  As it stands, I have to
look through a large number of reports that I don't need to.

If there's no likelihood of such a feature, is there any kind soul who
would tell me how to edit checklink so as to print the title after each
'Processing <URI>' statement?

- Richard.
