        Just to follow up on this a bit, as mentioned previously jumps
don't pass on a refferer header so you can't use that to pass on the
current URL to a new url as as tinyurl or kaboodle or digg etc. 

So I cam up with two partial answers both of which are a bit ugly.
If I don't really need to get a response to the URL being passwed on I
can use a printer ( I'm using this to allow people to create individual
bookmark files on a public lynx client ) This one's the simple one I
just use the printer script to pass on the LYNX_PRINT_URL variable,
along the lines of:
echo "<li><a href=\"$LYNX_PRINT_URL\">$name</a></li>" >> file

But that doesn't really help with the digg etc. problem, so my current
really really ugly answer ( and I apologise to people that can
actually code for this ) is to append ':URL' to the relevent jump urls
and then use this:

diff -u LYMainLoop.c LYMainLoop.c.N

+                 strcat(newdoc.address,curdoc.address);
+            }
            StrAllocCopy(lynxjumpfile, ret);

I did try looking for a marker on the jump short cut so if the
shortcut was l then l! would append the current URL which would be
much neater but I had problems getting it handled properly, especially
in properly clearing it afterwards. So kind of had to give up on that.

I think such a function would be really handy and if there is a way to
do this that I've missed, please let me know.
