TARGET SELECTION:
  <TARGETs>                     Enter URLs, hostnames, IP addresses, filenames or
                                IP ranges in CIDR, x.x.x-x, or x.x.x.x-x.x.x.x
                                format.
  --input-file=FILE, -i         Read targets from a file. You can pipe
                                hostnames or URLs directly with -i /dev/stdin.

TARGET MODIFICATION:
  --url-prefix                  Add a prefix to target URLs.
  --url-suffix                  Add a suffix to target URLs.
  --url-pattern                 Insert the targets into a URL.
                                e.g. example.com/%insert%/robots.txt

AGGRESSION:
The aggression level controls the trade-off between speed/stealth and
reliability.
  --aggression, -a=LEVEL        Set the aggression level. Default: 1.
  1. Stealthy                   Makes one HTTP request per target and also
                                follows redirects.
  3. Aggressive                 If a level 1 plugin is matched, additional
                                requests will be made.
  4. Heavy                      Makes a lot of HTTP requests per target. URLs
                                from all plugins are attempted.

                                empty value, e.g. "User-Agent:" will remove it.
  --follow-redirect=WHEN        Control when to follow redirects. WHEN may be
                                `never', `http-only', `meta-only', `same-site',
