    Default Link Grabber

    I created this program which grabs all <img> links in a single html file. But I can't get it work.

    Did you really write this yourself?

    As Norm says, what is the problem exactly? What happens when you compile the program?
    The more information you can give us the better. It will save us creating our own html file etc to test this..
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
