Tsk tsk. You haven't poked around the Perlfect site much, have you?  :-p
I found this useful program from a link there.

It's a bit rough around the edges. I had to do some search and replace 
to tidy up the code a bit. But it put together an inventory of 40 pages 
in short time.

Ugh. That'll be a big problem, because there's no way to index them via

Indeed. I created only about 40 pages for a restaurant site (see url in
sig). But even that is too much for a site map, so I created a simple
site map with 18 entries, showing a basic outline of the site.

On the site map (and help page) is a link to the document inventory, 
with 40 entries.
