Why DirDuster?

The main tool used for this task is DirBuster_ which is written in Java and uses a graphical interface. This makes it hard enough to use for me to prefer writting another tool with a more proper interface.

There also exist dirb_ but it doesn't allow the user to specify the number of threads which means a massive slowdown on my machine which wasn't acceptable anymore.
