This is a port of Lynx 2.9.0dev.10 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

Lynx is a fully-featured World Wide Web (WWW) client for users running
cursor-addressable, character-cell display devices such as vt100 terminals
and vt100 emulators running on 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.

DJGPP specific changes.
This port is based on the current develop code of lynx (aka lynx2.9.0dev.10)
available as:

This second release fixes a bug in the code to locate the lynx.lss file when
it is not located in its canonical place but in the installation directory
of lynx.exe.

The binary package now also contains the file. The original
seems no longer to be available. If it will ever return is unclear and I
have not found the file any where else.

I have also changed the names from these archive files so they match again
the 8.3 file name convention on plain DOS.

No other changes have been done to the sources. For more information about
this port read the previous announcement.

Because the previous port must be considered as broken, I have deleted it
from the server and replaced it by this one.

The port consists of the usual three packages that have been produced using
djdev205 (CVS repository code) and can be downloaded from
and mirrors as (time stamp 2021-11-30):
