    It's a very simple one in Mark Pilgrim's "Dive into Python" book,
whose text is freely available at: http://diveintopython.org/
    Check the "HTML processing" chapter. It contains a urllister.py 9
lines program, followed by a 7 lines usage example which does just
that: given a URL for a HTML file, it lists the hyperlinks inside it.
