Description 

Author

This class can generate links and keep track of clicks on them.

It can take the URL of a given link and returns another URL that will be used to keep track of the clicks on that link.

The link points to a script that will be used to record the clicks on a database accessed via PDO, and then it redirects the browser to the original link.

Alternatively the class can also store the clicked links of text files.

The database connection string, the URL for invalid links, the destination link base URL, the file for storing click counts are some of the configurable parameters.
