Hi all,

Does anybody know of any magic way how to use 'lynx' from
within scripts without a controlling terminal (ie in cron initiated jobs).

The cron job does something like:

echo 'city=London' |
        lynx -post_data \
        > outfile

The error message I get is:
Your terminal lacks the ability to clear the screen or position the cursor.

Thanks in advance for all replies.
