A misconception.  Though Don says he's using Lynx/2, he's actually
using OS/2 Lynx 2-7-1.  That's my version, which is a straight port of
the Unix/VMS source.  The archive referred to is available from, and also from popular
OS/2 ftp sites such as  It contains context diffs
from the vanilla Lynx 2-7-1 code as well as OS/2 binaries.  It
_doesn't_ contain any of Derek Decker's Lynx/2 code, which he won't
release to me, either (though he's never been anything but polite
about it).

OS/2'ers have a nasty habit of appending a "/2" to the end of any
cross-platform product's name to refer to the OS/2 version.  I
encourage OS/2 Lynx users to NOT refer to it as Lynx/2, so as to avoid
confusion with Derek Decker's rogue Lynx 2.4.1 port.
