I've built and installed version 2.8.3 of Lynx from the SYSTEM account

happy with it.  There are a few niggling problems, however, which I hope
someone here can help with.  Probably just something missing in
USERDEFS.H or the config file.

First, when I try to use the Options item Lynx responds with these two

Alert!: Unable to open tempfile

Is this something related to the "#define TEMP_SPACE" line at the very
start of USERDEFS.H?  The setting I used was:

It probably is. I don't recall at the moment (and don't have a VMS system
handy to test at the moment), but "2.8.3" sounds like the interim version
that I submitted for the freeware cdrom.  2.8.4 "should" work at least as
well. But I didn't experiment with changing the definition of TEMP_SPACE.
Reading the related code, it's not obvious whether it will handle various
types of definitions (the ']' is a little different from a ':').  Perhaps
making it a rooted logical would work better for you.  Note that you can
experiment with this by defining the LYNX_TEMP_SPACE logical.

OK, I'll give 2.8.4 a try and see what happens.
