Keith,
	Well first of all w3c-linkchecker is overkill for that purpose. Just
using LWP:UserAgent would do fine.

	However that said you could put the links you want to check in a file
and check the file. To do the checking you could use the checklink
script as a command line tool or use again sue LWP::UserAgent to contact
the page.
