I remember...

But I don't think it was ever fixed *for -source*, in the distributed
code.  Maybe you fixed it yourself.

In *interactive mode*, cookie saving seems to work just fine for me.

If that means 2.8.3dev17 - for -dump, you need to set the new option:

# COOKIE_SAVE_FILE is the default file in which persistent cookies are
# stored at exit, if Lynx was compiled with EXP_PERSISTENT_COOKIES and the
# PERSISTENT_COOKIES option is enabled.  The cookie save file can also be
# specified on the command line.
# With an interactive Lynx session, COOKIE_SAVE_FILE will default to
# COOKIE_FILE if it is not set.  With a non-interactive Lynx session (e.g.,
# -dump), cookies will only be saved to file if COOKIE_SAVE_FILE is set.

For -source, it's ultimately supposed to work the same way, but we are
still working on it  (or rather, BJP is - see messages from
brian j pardy <address@hidden> in the recent archive).

That's for -source; no surprise it doesn't save cookies now, it
never did.
