I appreciate your help, but I'm not sure what benefit you get by being rude.

So, you're talking about piping the output of this into another run of lynx? Great, two levels of depth, not accounting for repeated links. So to fully spider the site, I'd end up needing to write a shell script to continually call this. At that point, I may as well just modify the Ruby crawler I've already written to only count links instead of scrape content.

This won't recursively descend a site. lynx -help on the option -dump says the following: 'dump the first file to stdout and exit'. Even using the option -traversal, this will exit after dumping links from the homepage.

Did this get downvoted because this question is not appropriate for server fault? If so, which stack exchange site would it be appropriate for? I feel that it's a fair question, and I'm still looking for a satisfactory answer.
