Requires Mac OS X 10.3.9+, PPC or Intel
New in 0.8.1 (full version history, below):
Because Lynxlet is a standard browser application, it can be launched in the same ways as other browsers (like Safari, FireFox, IE, etc). In addition to being a web browser, Lynx supports browsing for many other network protocols (FTP, Gopher, Finger, etc) and Local directory browsing. The Lynxlet application supports these protocols wherever possible.
Lynxlet and its embedded lynx can also be launched from the command line in several ways.
Lynxlet can be launched using the open command as follows. (Note: Up through 10.3, 'open' has a bug which causes it to always use the default browser for URLs, but files and directories work fine.)
% open -a Lynxlet http://www.w3.org/
The embedded lynx can also be directly run without the Lynxlet launcher.
This is particularly useful when using lynx in shell scripts or directly in local or remote interactive shells.
Lynx is located in the Lynxlet application package in
There are various ways to run lynx in a shell. The following examples assume the Lynxlet application has

% PATH=$PATH:/Applications/Lynxlet.app/Contents/Resources/lynx/bin % lynx
% sudo ln -s /Applications/Lynxlet.app/Contents/Resources/lynx/bin/lynx /usr/bin/lynx % lynx
