 See the thread in October "LYNX-DEV How to change screen size??":
 Following on from that earlier discussion:
 I apologise that I should have made clear that my patches of last June
 were for the "Fotemods" version (which I see has now disappeared).
 I have read with interest the various responses.  All I can say is that
 the patches work fine for me (SunOS 4.1.3, sunview or X-openwindows,
 standard curses): if I resize my shelltool or xterm either smaller
 or larger, on the next keystroke lynx will reload and reformat the
 document to fit the new size; no problems with line wrapping, and
 no apparent rendering inefficiency.  As I said in June, the idea is
 to get initscr to allocate a large enough buffer to accommodate any
 likely window resize - once allocated (this particular version of)
 curses will happily use a smaller size.
 No doubt there are better or more elegant ways of doing it, and
 I should probably be using ncurses or slang anyway.  For anyone
 else using standard curses on Suns (eg: Jon Sherling) however,
 this initscr trick might work for them too.

 Looking forward to a new "official" release,
 Alex Lyons.
