Lynx is a secure, fast, integrated web-browser.

Integrated, in that one can directly load pages and links into other programs from lynx.
It also serves as a file manager on the local machine, no shell command knowledge required.

You can view PDFs and images in their default viewers by clicking them.
Webpages and links can be passed to your default web-browser or wget just as easily. No cut 'n paste required.
Of course, if you like to cut & paste all text can be copied.

You might like to use it with Firefox, or G-Chrome.

Search and find using lynx. Once you've determined the site is real and safe (peek at the code with the backslash key) load the Chrome or Firefox browser right from lynx.

1. What's the benefit, exactly?

More in this thread: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=62586

In the lynx for FD64 thread is samples-lynx-2.8.7.pet, with icons and a few sample files. This can be used by all versions of Puppy.

Please test this pet.
If you don't like it perhaps you'd prefer the simpler and lighter elinks or w3m?

2. Does it really work?

Testing some of my own advice... testing... testing... 1-2-3.


Lynx works!

Hope you like it and have fun today.

ps.
The above mentioned wakeAlarm is new and improved for Puppy:

All new code, new file-format for the samples, and a new feature added.

In the Puppy 4 PET there is this config file "/root/.pinerc". Should it be there? I have not checked the Puppy 5 PET.

Yes, my careful abushcrafter, it should be there.

When one selects `save options' (press O to see options) this file is created.

It is your local settings, and complements the pine.cfg in usr/ ... search google and you'll see the locations may vary a bit, but there are three possible basic config files, of which we have used only two.

The third is used to limit control without having to compile away option. They are, in effect, cascading rule-sheets.

Very good to be so alert. Congratulations! Always better safe than sorry Smile

When I left it out the default text editor wasn't always working, so I put it into the pet rather than have it created by the user. I'd rather the thing works right off the bat.


Hope you like it, and it serves you well.
