        <h3>About PHPCrawl</h3><br />
        PHPCrawl is a set of classes written in PHP for crawling/spidering websites, so just call it a webcrawler-library or crawler-engine for PHP.<br /><br />
        PHPCrawl "spiders" websites and passes information about all found documents (pages, links, files ans so on) for futher processing to users of the library.<br /><br />
        It provides several options to specify the behaviour of the crawler like URL- and Content-Type-filters, cookie-handling, robots.txt-handling, limiting options,
        multiprocessing and much more.<br /><br />
        PHPCrawl is completly free opensource software and is licensed under the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html">GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE v2</a>.<br /><br />
        To get a first impression on how to use the crawler you may want to take a look at the <a href="quickstart.html">quickstart guide</a> or an <a href="example.html">example</a>.
        A complete reference and documentation of all available options and methods can be found in the <a href="classreferences/index.html" target="blank">classreferences-section</a><br /><br />
        The current version of the phpcrawl-package and older releases can be downloaded from a <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpcrawl/files/PHPCrawl/">sourceforge-mirror</a>.<br /><br />
        <i>Note to users of phpcrawl version 0.7x or before:</i> Although in version 0.8 some method-names and parameters have changed, it should be <b>fully compatible
        to older versions</b> of phpcrawl.
