Here is patch, it fix few small bugs. (including recent one)


BTW, TD: why BOOLEAN is char/byte/int?

It's been there a while - longer than I've been working on Lynx.
So part of my comments are secondhand info.

I recall reading one of the other developers stating that there
was some scheme for deciding which to use.  But no one's enforced
that (choice between BOOL and BOOLEAN) for some time.

On win32 the compilers may define BOOL and/or BOOLEAN. You see that reflected in HTUtils.h - and if it's defined, we use it (rather than trying to override it).

For other platforms it's generally not defined or declared.
Some compilers may have a comparable bool or Bool type.  Lynx
isn't using that.  But its default for BOOLEAN is a char since
that's the smallest data available (it only has to hold 1 bit).

First put following lines in global lynx.cfg file:
And after that start new lynx session and configure file via 'o' page.

No, that doesn't work: the 'o'ptions list still shows session with '!'
& if you enter the file name there, it isn't saved in  .lynxrc .
However, if you simply enter the full dir name in  lynx.cfg ,
it is recognised even when Lynx is started from a subdir.

*Angry* Maybe it got somehow lost during various patches I had send to
this list.

There were several versions of the patch, and I looked for the last one. make it simpler, we'd be talking about a change to src/LYrcFile.c
