Thanks for your answer.

I downloaded the latest version of Lynx,
The 'CHANGE' file says that handling of forms with 
ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data" is added. But, even the latest version
still doesn't support INPUTs with TYPE=="file" or TYPE="range".
The exact function I need must include 'file' TYPE.

I'm sorry that I don't have enough time to implement that file
upload function. So, would you tell me the source structure of lynx
roughly ? Which files or procedures are related to the processing 
of FORM, especially that with ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data".
If I add a program module or fixed the existing sources to support
INPUTs with TYPE=="file", what shell I do ? Would you point out the
uncompleted part in the sources ?

What do I consider carefully to support 'file' TYPE ?

I'm very sorry for my impolite requests.
And I'll very thank you who helps me.
