lynx-dev No references with -dump option

Hello everyone,

I was inspired by the DJ Delorie version of the Lynx Viewer at:

I downloaded the latest version of Lynx, installed it on my site, and compiled everything to create the executable. I coded by own version of the lynxview.cgi script at:

The idea being to inspire potential customers how important it is to design your web site with this in mind (hoping in the end that they hire me as a professional consultant, of course).

What I do is via a CGI-script I run lynx to generate a dump file:

./lynx -cfg=./lynx.cfg -force_html -dump 'url' >results.txt

And then I show the results by presenting the contents of this results file. Just try it to see better what I mean. Everything is enclosed within <pre>-tags to make it readable.

The only problem is that by default all the hyperlinks are numbered between brackets, and at the end there is a reference list.

I would prefer to have the hyperlinks as real clickable links instead, and have no reference list at the end, just like at the Delorie site. That is, rather than:

[32]Another link

I would have:

<a href="">Another link</a>

Is there another option to accomplish this or do I have to hack some of the source files somewhere. If it is the latter, in which source files do I have to make the changes?

Thanks in advance,
