Aw, gee.  My internet provider doesn't let me have access to sites with
diff.exe.  Maybe someone can send me a FreeDos version.  And, for your
information, the Windows NSL idea was mine.  You should be more courteous
to "guests".

Are you sure?  Did you compile it for Linux to be certain?  I know that
the Windows versions of lynx had strange problems with input before the
change, froze up under Windows 98, etc.  And, with the change, they
work just fine.  You know how to jump in with the criticisms, but where
is your proof that you are even halfway right?

You are using a discussion of technical matters to be obnoxious.  Your
criticisms have nothing to do with reality.
