X-Mailer: Lynx, Version 2.6
Whenever I try to get any .tgz file through Lynx, it sees the file as a text
and tries to bring it down and display it, rather than download
it as a binary file. I have no difficulty with Lynx recognizing a .tar.gz
file as binary and asking if I want to download, nor with any other .gz or
.zip files. I've seen this effect with both Lynx-2.6 and Lynx-2.7, running
on both my ISP's Sparcs under SunOS 4.1.4 and my own Linux 2.0.29 PC. I've
added .tgz to the list of SUFFIXES in lynx.cfg as an octet-stream, but this
hasn't made any difference. Can you tell me how to get Lynx to correctly
see these files as binary and download them correctly? Thanks.
Isn't it the task of the server to provide a correct MIME type (and
ENCODING as well) ?
