According to file about_lynx/COPYHEADER from the Lynx distribution,

  "Any licensing or usage questions should be directed to Michael
   Grobe <address@hidden>."

[ I don't know whether 2-4-2 predates that file, or wheter that is
relevant. ]

I am sure Wayne you are wrapping up the relevant (and probably
required) information with your zip files, so he was just not reading

Depending on what he wants to do, he may already have a licence, the GNU
Public License.  (assuming that applies to 2-4-2 and your code).  What he
may or may not do under that licence is spelled out in the file COPYING.
