Which has since been superceded by three or four releases.  You know
that initalize key translations call in the latest Windows versions
of slang?  Well, I had suggested that the author use an initialize
mouse call instead of issuing the Linux escape sequence, and in
strange revenge, the author put in an initialize key translations
routine that really has no other purpose except to make the
uninitiated wonder why lynx doesn't respond to pageup, uparrow, etc.,
under Windows.

And now for the big question:  Is DGJPP for Dos really Dos?  Because
you can't compile DJGPP code under Borland or Microsoft compilers for
Dos, and the code doesn't port to 16-bit Windows.
