In 1997, I became involved with Lynx. Although Lynx ran on many platforms, its UNIX build configuration needed improvement. This project arose out of tracking issues on the lynx-dev mailing list.


I worked with Jim Spath on this. As of Lynx 2.8, it was mostly complete.

This was my plan. It took more than one step, so I applied intermediate versions into the developmental sources, both to get feedback, as well as to simplify synchronization.


If you have built Lynx on an obscure platform, or have other contributions, we are interested in hearing from you. Comments can be directed to the Lynx Developers List at
