Is there some automated way to test broken urls over a LaTex document for errors such as 404 etc. I noticed that some broken urls but the list of reference is too massive to go through one-by-one. Ideas how to solve this kind quality control problem fast?
I have some ideas to solve this:
open up writing-process like in SO, with watchful peers, bugs tend become shallow
some at least partly automated processing of the document, perhaps something like apache-logging or something in that degree? (this is mere speculation and I have no idea how this could be done for a LaTex document to find and process broken material -- perhaps breaking up the large document into some blog series for peer-review where anyone can comment but it may become a larger problem of data-management)
