+++ Options Screen Help +++
The Options Screen allows you to set and
modify many of Lynx's features. The following
options may be set.
Editor - If non-empty it defines the editor to spawn
when editing a local file or sending mail.
Any valid text editor may be entered here.
DISPLAY variable - If non-empty it specifies your X terminal
Bookmark file - If non-empty it specifies the name of your
'Bookmark file'. If the filename is not
absolute, then the path begins from your
Personal Mail - You may set your mail address here so that
Address when mailing messages to other people or
mailing files to yourself, your email address
can be automatically filled in. You email
address will also be sent to HTTP servers in
a from: field.
Searching type - If set to 'case sensitive', user searches
invoked by the '/' command will be case
sensitive substring searches. The
default is 'Case Insensitive' substring
Character set - This option allows you to set up the default
character set for your specific terminal. The
character set provides a mapping of 8 bit
ISO Latin character entities into viewable
characters and is only important if you will
be viewing these type of characters with Lynx.
VI keys - If set to 'ON' then the lowercase h,j,k, and l,
keys will be mapped to left, down, up, right,
Emacs keys - If set to 'ON' then the CTRL-P, CTRL-N, CTRL-F,
CTRL-B, keys will be mapped to up, down, right,
and left, respectively.
Keypad as arrows - This option gives the choice between navigating
or numbered links with the keypad (see Lynx Navigation) and having
every link numbered so that the links may be
selected by numbers instead of moving to them with
the arrow keys.
User Mode - Beginner
Shows two extra lines of help at the bottom
of the screen
Intermediate (normal mode)
The "normal" statusline messages appear.
The URL is shown on the statusline.
Local execution - If set to 'ON', lynx will locally execute
links commands contained inside of links. This
can be HIGHLY DANGEROUS so it is recommended
that they remain 'ALWAYS OFF' unless
otherwise set by your system administrator.
This option may not be available on most
versions of Lynx.
