SYNOPSIS

cewl [OPTION] ... URL

DESCRIPTION

CeWL (Custom Word List generator) is a ruby app which spiders a given URL, up to a specified depth, and returns a list of words which can then be used for password crackers such as John the Ripper. Optionally, CeWL can follow external links. CeWL can also create a list of email addresses found in mailto links. These email addresses can be used as usernames in brute force actions. CeWL is pronounced "cool".
