no need - I've been very busy.  And seeing 2.1pre's manpage begins with this

       links  is  a text mode WWW browser with ncurses interface,
       supporting colors,  correct  table  rendering,  background
       downloading,  menu driven configuration interface and slim

It goes on to claim that it recognizes file:// URLs which also is incorrect
(I just checked that with 0.98 and 2.1pre).

I tend to ignore the rest of the so-called documentation (I pointed that out
more than once over the past few years - I see that 0.98 finally fixed that).

The "-g" option isn't in the manpage anyway, and it appears that the way to
determine what the program does is to read the source code...
