term? The latest prereleases are very stable, and have some great new
features, like fill-out forms, HTML+ support, etc.
Also, if anyone doesn't think they have the resources for xmosaic,
you might want to try out lynx, a curses based browser. The latest
pre-release has forms support (very shaky from what I've seen, but
usable). It's available from ftp2.cc.ukans.edu:/pub/WWW/lynx
And, if you are an emacs freak like myself, you might want to use
the WWW client I wrote in emacs. Its available from
cs.indiana.edu:/pub/elisp/w3. Supports lucid/epoch/emacs18/emacs19 -
mouse support and fonts in the versions that support it, plus graphics
support in epoch (nothing like checking out the vatican exhibit's GIFs
and xbitmaps within an emacs buffer - very bizarre :). My version can
use a program like termtelnet in a subprocess, plus I am about to
release patches to the main emacs 19 distribution to use TERM in
emacs' open-network-stream primitive. I'll post to c.o.l.a when I do.
After that, you can just change src/s/linux.h to #define TERM and
it'll work without a hitch. :)
