The Wayback Machine is a digital archive of web pages created by the Internet Archive. It allows you to look up past versions of a URL. It also allows you to submit a URL to be captured as it exists currently.

How To

Getting the oldest available version of a URL:

   URL="http://example.com"
   wget -O- -q "http://web.archive.org/web/timemap/link/${URL}" | grep "first memento" | sed -r "s/^<([^>]+)>;.*$/\1/"
