When I can scrape together the $50 to buy Borland C++ 4.51, I'd like to
see about getting the Win32 version working in some shape or form under
Win 3.1...

<blush> Well, might as well forget cum laude (grin).  I have about a 3.2,
and am close enough to graduating (hopefully Dec. 97...) that not much
will change that.  I'd love to do more work on lynx, but unlike Fote, I'm
not willing to devote EVERY second of my free time to working on Lynx
(hey, I have to have time to DREAM about having a social life... chuckle).
I still haven't managed to get the official release of 2.7 compiled yet,
or download the Win32 or DJGPP version to try it out... sigh...

One project that I've been meaning to do is to convert the filenames to
the 8.3 convention (at least in the WWWLib) to make the job of integrating
WWWLib 5 into the code a little easier.  Has Mr. Dickey (sorry, brain
isn't working, and I can't remember your first name) taken a look at the
autoconfigure script for WWWLib 5 and see if anything can be done to it to
remove its dependence on GNU Make?

Well, enough ramblings from the insane asylum for now... ;)
