Ah, I see, you can interrupt a normal connectionm, but interrupting a
STALLED connection will be a no-go.

Oops, all of this hodge-podge of /'s and \'s is addling my brain.  My temp
variable is set to H:\TEMP is what I meant to say.  Lynx DOES create it's
L-12379283TMP.html files in H:\TEMP.  Maybe it's just a problem with
EDIT.COM.  That's it.  If you try 'edit H:/TEMP\LBLAH.TXT', it tries to
edit H:/LBLAH.TXT.  Why couldn't MS have used /'s like everyone else?!?
ARGH!  Anyway, maybe what you need to do is convert all the /'s to \'s
before calling external apps.  I suppose apps ported from unix will
recognize both, but DOS/Win native apps are likely gonna want \'s.
