Deathwatch WebCrawler Home
Take Searching Into Your Own Hands
About the Deathwatch Project
The Deathwatch WebCrawler was an idea created by Matthew Walker to allow all users of the internet, currently only Win32 or 64 though, to have their own personal desktop WebCrawler. The vision was as such that a user could simply enter a search term and a home site and let it do its thing. This vision is coming together, and although version 1 still is a long way off, it is coming together nicely!
Getting the Newest Version
Although we have not released any compiled versions of the crawler, we do have reference and source packages up for download, both through SourceForge's file release system, and the CVS repository. You cannot download the newest version from this site due to server restrictions, however as we release new packages, they will be updated on this page!
Getting the Source
Because Deathwatch is an open-source project, it has to be to get on SourceForge, you may get the source in a number of ways. The first, and arguably the hardest is to access the Deathwatch CVS repository, if you know your way around CVS then this is definitely the option for you. Alternatively, you can download the semi-current source from our project website on SourceForge, http://sourceforge.net/projects/deathwatch.

-Due to the technologies that we are using, we develop testing applications for them. One of them is the Deathwatch HTTP Engine, another would be the WalkerSoft Installer Bootstrap. All of these will be released on http://www.astalavista.com/. If you need support or the source on any of these please do not hesitate to e-mail Matthew Walker.
