Well, on closer inspection, it works...and it doesn't work.
It seems to always work for me on a 68040...on the first try.
If the target page is in the cache, you have a greater chance
of bombing out of Netscape on subsequent clicks...5th click is
a charm :) (on the bright side, it is not really a locking bomb,
just an "unexpected quit", type 1 :?)
For that matter, the following other methods had the same relative success
//just to make the typecasting explicit:
So, go figure.
If you expire the link immediately, in the options menu, the assign()
seems to work, and work. Perhaps the others will too...
Regarding to assign() or not to assign(), I did not catch a reference
by Mr. Eich about it; more to the point, I guess, I do not know
the name. Regardless, I would not have recommended using assign
had I known Netscape (assume Eich=Netscape) discouraged it.
Who is he? Is he among us? ... if we build a really nice script, will
he come? :)
