Lynx README file WHAT IS LYNX? Lynx is a fully-featured World Wide Web (WWW) client for users running cursor-addressable, character-cell display devices (e.g., vt100 terminals, vt100 emulators running on PCs or Macs, or any other character-cell display). It will display Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) documents containing links to files on the local system, as well as files on remote systems running http, gopher, ftp, wais, nntp, finger, or cso/ph/qi servers, and services accessible via logins to telnet, tn3270 or rlogin accounts. Current versions of Lynx run on Unix and VMS. Lynx can be used to access information on the WWW, or to build information systems intended primarily for local access. For example, Lynx has been used to build several Campus Wide Information Systems (CWIS). In addition, Lynx can be used to build systems isolated within a single LAN. For information about Lynx, including new updates, go to the "Lynx links" <URL:http://www.crl.com/~subir/lynx.html>. Lynx is distributed under the GNU General Public License without restrictions on usage or redistribution, and is supported by the Lynx user community. See the accompanying COPYHEADER and COPYING files (in the about_lynx subdirectory) for more details. Certain portions of the Lynx source distribution were originally created by CERN and have been modified during the development of Lynx. See WWW/Copyright.txt for copyright info regarding CERN products used in Lynx DOCUMENTATION A users guide is included in this distribution along with a man page for Unix systems and a help file for VMS systems. All documentation is contained in this directory and the doc and samples subdirectories. While running Lynx, type 'h', 'H', or '?' to invoke the help menu system. From the help menu you may access several useful documents pertaining to Lynx and the World Wide Web. The most important of these is the Lynx Users Guide. By default, Lynx will use the Lynx Enhanced Pages, which includes http links for help and FAQs conerning Lynx. It is recommended that you install your own help menu system at your site in order to lessen the load on http servers. This also will allow you to customize the help menu system for your site. To install the help menu system, copy the lynx_help/ and about_lynx/ directories to a public place on your system. Then, edit the lynx.cfg file so that the HELPFILE line is defined as follows: HELPFILE:file://localhost/[public_path]/lynx_help/lynx_help_main.html where [public_path] is the absolute path to the lynx_help directory. Customizing the help menu system is just a matter of editing a set of HTML files. INSTALLING LYNX To install Lynx, follow the steps listed in the INSTALLATION file located in the source distribution. PROBLEMS If you experience problems installing or compiling Lynx, please read the PROBLEMS file located in the source distribution. If your problem is not addressed there, there is a mailing list called lynx-dev which is frequented by Lynx experts. To subscribe to lynx-dev, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with only the following message in the body: SUBSCRIBE LYNX-DEV address where inclusion of your email address is optional if it can be obtained, correctly, from the mail headers of your subscription request. If you wish to unsubscribe from lynx-dev, send email to email@example.com with only the following message in the body: UNSUBSCRIBE LYNX-DEV address where inclusion of your email address is optional if it can be obtained, correctly, from the mail headers of your request. Also, to get a list of useful majordomo commands, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following command: HELP Finally, please...please...please do not send commands to the lynx-dev mailing list. BTW, any messages you wish to post should be sent to email@example.com. PLEASE use the lynx-dev list, NOT private email to the developers, for questions or discussion about Lynx, or contributions of patches. Patches should use the context diff format (diff -c).
