CAT CPU Tester is a lightweight and easy to use Windows-based application for quick CPU performance assessment. The application is designed to measure both single-threaded and multi-threaded CPU performance and is capable of taking advantage of up to 144 processing cores simultaneously. After every run a result file will appear (or it will be updated in case it is not the first run) in the same directory as the executable for an easy and quick comparison to other CPUs. Please make sure you have a sufficient CPU cooling system before running a multi-threaded test as your CPU may heat up. You can download it below.
* A computer running Windows XP SP3 or newer OS;
* .NET Framework 4.0 or newer.

How to Use Web Link Extractor
Step 1. Browsing for an input file. Extract and launch the Web Link Extractor. Click “Browse” to select your text file you want to extract the web links from. Click “Open”. Once done, you will see a notification at the bottom of the application (pic. 1). Please note if you want to get the links out of a non *.txt file, say, a *.docx, I suggest you create a new *.txt file and copy all the content of a non *.txt file there.
Step 2. Using link filtering. If you want to save all the web links from your input file, scroll down to step 3. If you wish to either include or exclude specific web pages from the result file, check the “Enable Link Filtering” box (pic. 2). Once link filtering has been enabled, you have to decide which one of two actions is needed:
2.1 Filter action: Include. This option should be used if you want to extract the specific website links which contain a matching pattern of one or more filters. Example: say, you have a big chat log file in*.txt format and want to extract all Youtube and Facebook links only. With “Include” checkbox being checked, click on “Add Filter” to enter “youtube.com” as well as “facebook.com” filters (without quotes) (pic. 3).
2.2 Filter action: Exclude. As the name suggests, this options does the contrary to the “Include” function, meaning it skips all the links but the ones matching one or more filters’ pattern. Example: say, you have a big chat log file in*.txt format and want to extract all but Youtube and Facebook links. With “Exclude” checkbox being checked, click on “Add Filter” and enter “youtube.com” as well as “facebook.com” filters (without quotes).
Important! Filters are case-sensitive!
Important! If you change the filter action, all the previously added filters will be lost!
2.3 Exclude duplicate links. This checkbox should be checked if you want to have each website link appearing once in an output file.
2.4 Link Numeration. This checkbox should be checked if you want to keep track of the web links in an output file.
Removing a filter. If you want to remove a filter, click on the “Remove Filter” button and type in a filter’s ID you want to remove (pic. 4).
Step 3. Saving extracted links to a file. Type in an output file’s name and choose its format from either*.html or*.txt. Saving your file as *.html will create clickable HTML links for your ease of use. Click “Save”. If you have either a massive input file or a slow computer, saving might take some time. The newly saved file will appear in the same directory as the executable.
