Lynx on Mac OS X should use native secure transport library and not OpenSSL

Mac OS X provides secure transport library that integrates with OS X keychain and that already manages SSL certificates etc. See this link for more details

https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/security/Reference/secureTransportRef/Reference/reference.html

It would be great if Lynx could use and link against this library instead of OpenSSL, to avoid certificate duplication and management in multiple places, but to also allow Lynx to use user passwords stored securely in the user’s keychain.

Windows and https

Hi,

Does someone know how I can reach https-links with my Windows lynx?
Version is 2.8.8.rel1.
I tried yahoo.com, and Lynx complained about https urls support missing.

Riku

2 Lynx "Bugs".

1. lynx is unresponsive when doing DNS lookups.  this is a problem with lookups that take an endlessly long
time for whatever reason, and for some failed connections/negotiations; and CTRL-G can't end the wait
and/or lockups.  i am using the latest lynx from source and FreeBSD 9.2.

2. it would be nice if lynx would create links for javascript code, so that i don't have to look at the source
and create the links myself.  many javascript links are functional when manually appending the relative
links to the page URL, and lynx should present them instead of pretending that they don't exist.

An alternative use for lynx

I came up with an alternate use for lynx as the engine for a random
wallpaper generator.  Thought I'd share.

Basically, I wrote a Python wrapper which uses lynx to a) help compile a
list of available wallpapers, b) retrieve a random wallpaper either
locally or from a webcam c) update the image used as wallpaper.

If interested in taking a look at the code, it's here: 

http://sourceforge.net/projects/papershaper/

Feedback welcome.  Enjoy!

SOURCE_CACHE

HI there
 I want to browse ( or use -cmd_script ) to view a couple of html pages
 Then exit it from lynx and view the HTML of the sites.
 I have tried setting:
  SOURCE_CACHE:FILE

but  don't see where or even if it is caching the HTML to a file(s) ?

I cant use  -source / dump command line switches as I have to do a form submit prior to going to the target  html page I want
Many thanks
  ...Henry

PLEASE RE-ADD MIRROR

We previously had these same mirrors up under Go-Part.com but then changed our domain to Go-Parts.com. The
mirror links then dropped off. We apologize deeply for this, and assure you that this is a one-time event.
Going forward, the mirrors will stay up for a very long time to come, and are being served from very reliable
and fast servers, and being monitored and maintained by a very competent server admin team.

PLEASE RE-ADD:

(Australia)
http://mirrors-au.go-parts.com/lynx
ftp://mirrors-au.go-parts.com/lynx
rsync://mirrors-au.go-parts.com/lynx

Thanks,

lynx2.8.8rel.2

The current version of lynx is 2.8.8

It's available at
	http://lynx.isc.org/
	ftp://lynx.isc.org/lynx2.8.8/
2.8.9 Development & patches:
	http://lynx.isc.org/current/index.html

2014-03-09 (2.8.8rel.2)
* correct errata in test-files which cause broken links in break-out directory
  in lynx.isc.org server -TD
* amend change from 2.8.8pre.2, to ensure that MinGW libraries already
  declaring 'sleep()' will build -TD
* drop unused save/compress rules from makefile.in, because fixing umask for
  these is pointless -TD
* modify makefile.in to establish sane umask value in the "install-doc" rule
  (report by Rajeev V Pillai) -TD
* build-fix for NetBSD, whose curses library provides use_default_colors(),
  but the package turns off the keymap feature (patch by Thomas Klausner).

Lynx Version 2.8.8pre.5 should copy files in share/lynx_doc/ with correct owners/permissions

Files and dirs. in share/lynx_doc/ are not installed with the correct
owners/permissions. On a newly installed lynx directory
(user's default umask is 0077):

$ ls -l /opt/lynx/share/lynx_doc/
total 620
-rw------- 1 root rvp 564675 Feb 14 18:30 CHANGES
