Recursively scans directories for static html files for bad or empty links. See

# Example bad or empty links

<a href=""></a> Empty
<a href=""></a> Any bad link will fail, this one is missing http://

## Command line

> existence /path/to/dir

>>> from existence import scan
>>> scan("/path/to/dir")
>>> scan("/path/to/bad/links")
