segfault when removing an expired cookie

I don't know if this is fixed already, but I just ran into a crash when 
trying to select a link on m.facebook.com. Backtrace is attached. 
Presumably, I had an expired cookie that was being removed. 
scan_cookie_sublist can remove cookies from the sublist, but it then tries 
to iterate to the next item, relying on memory that it just freed. The 
attached patch should fix it.

Note: This only applies to 2.8.8; 2.8.7 handled this correctly.

Thanks,
-Mike

[lynx.isc.org] You are apparently blocking Tor users (and others), probably damaging reputation


The Lynx download website (lynx.isc.org) is famous for banning many IP
address from downloading releases [1].

If you tried to get a safe copy of your great software, for example,
from Iran, the most straightforward way is to do with Tor [2]:

$ torsocks curl -LO http://lynx.isc.org/current/lynx2.8.8rel.2.tar.bz2

However, this would result in:
	curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden

Bans against Tor IP addresses are often observed in the wild (which
are concerned by many researchers). However, what is your point in
preventing users from getting your programs?

Thank you,
A random user

P.S.
I encountered a problem with sending an email to web <at> lynx.browser.org.
This is strange IMHO.

Having trouble with colors and keys

I'm having trouble with lynx, I just got done configuring the config file and placing it ~/.lynxrc. The
selected hyperlinks are green, but I never even used green in my config file. Looking at the lynx manual,
the words "http" "gopher" and others are overwritten with words from the next line. I looked at the error
file ".lynx_error" but nothing shows up so I'm guessing my configuration changes were accepable. Also, I
made some key binding changes and I'm wondering, will any conficts be reported? And if not, then, can I
unbind some keys? There are no directions in the lynx.cfg file for unbinding lynx functions, though
removing the key associated with the value might work.

Thanks

Help getting a lynx that will open https

Hi, my name is Ryan. I heard about ftp based browsers in one of my classes and wanted to try it out. Lynx was recommended and I found one that was already set up. The problem was it would not open any https sites. I have no experience programming and all the instructions loose me. Is there any pre-packaged version you know of?

Thanks
Ryan

If you add this line to lynx.cfg does it help?

That's correct.  It should be provided as a % escape.  Are you saying 
that the equipment needs an illegal URI?

Need to pass ASCII-GS thru to lynxcgi: QUERY_STRING

Hi All,         

 

Background....

We have found an unusual niche for lynx:-  our warehouse management

system employs  "RF-guns"  (small screen  WiFi units with barcode

scanners, see  Intermec CK70  etc )

 

There are hundreds of units on the market,  and to be able to use them

all,  we run the RF-gun's  telnet equivalent program and then run  lynx 

inside that.

 

The various screens needed by our application are HTML pages (almost

exclusively "forms") that are generated by a cluster of  cgi-bins usually

accessed via  'lynxcgi:'

 

These RF-guns cause their laser-scanners to act like key-strokes.

So when the user scans a barcode,  the data is pumped into the current

field on a form, and the  cgi-bin eventually sees this as a classic  

"QUERY_STRING="   environment variable.

 

 

 

My problem....

Most barcodes are a single field....   supermarket-product-code etc.  

no issue.   one-scan-to-one-form-field... easy!   Even QR scans.

 

However there is a class of barcodes  that contain  sub-fields,  and

some of those sub-fields are allowed to be of variable length.

The embedded  sub-field-terminator is always rendered by the RF-gun as 

ASCII-GS (Group Separator,  0x1d, 035)    (see GS1 specification and 

CODE-128 symbology...  nicest web-site is www.adams1.com,  if you have a

spare few days!!)

 

That  ASCII control character is being silently suppressed from the

input, and I need a way to allow it to come through to the

QUERY_STRING.      Actual display of the code-point is (from my point of

view) optional!

 

help!

Cheers

Mark ;-)

 

PS..   our current version is  2-8-7   across many platforms, but 85% are now Linux  (RedHat)...

Happy to update,  especially if the character gymnastics are changed.

Can someone remind me of the exact name of the lynx cookie file?
I am doing a detox this week....without coffee...which is hardly 
civilized! ahem, and am really having trouble remembering things like

Thanks,

lynx-2.8.8rel2 bugfix for ncursesw on NetBSD

Hi!

Leonard Schmidt reported a bug against lynx in pkgsrc when compiling
with ncursesw, see http://gnats.netbsd.org/49200

I can confirm that without the patch below, I get the following
compilation issue:

LYStrings.c: In function 'expand_tiname':
LYStrings.c:1009:37: error: 'strnames' undeclared (first use in this function)
     if ((code = lookup_tiname(name, strnames)) >= 0
                                     ^
LYStrings.c:1009:37: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it
appears in
LYStrings.c:1010:33: error: 'strfnames' undeclared (first use in this function)
  || (code = lookup_tiname(name, strfnames)) >= 0) {
                                 ^
LYStrings.c:1011:6: error: 'cur_term' undeclared (first use in this function)
  if (cur_term->type.Strings[code] != 0) {
      ^

on NetBSD-7.99.1/x86_64 with gcc-4.8.3.

The patch is attached, please include it.

Thanks,
 Thomas
