"No frills, no bells, no whistles – just links."

Welcome to Cave Links A-Z. I had a simple objective in designing this site. I wanted to provide a site of simple text links with text URL’s. This provides users the ability to copy/paste and e-mail the site in "plain text". In various situations this is preferable to sending a page with occult links. Once received as e-mail, most systems can convert these plain text URLs to Internet links.

Please e-mail corrections, notice of bad links and suggested additional links to me, Dan Peden, at:
