Dixitur illum address@hidden scribere...

[ unfriendly HTML ]

Feature request:

if somebody knows how to parse HTML and java, and tries to "enter"
a site which has a form and a javascript so-called "submit button",
lynx should either offer a submit button per form itself, or a
HTTP POST facility, which I'll try to explain below:

user hits a key (we need to find a free one, probably shift-foo)
user gets asked for a URL, the current one being default
user can edit and apply ?foo=bar (GET) data, and hits return
<until here, same as shift-g functionality>

But: the HTTP GET request is not sent. instead, a text editor
pops up, where user can enter stuff like

This is, together with the URL (and maybe the GET data) from above,
sent as (manually formed) HTTP POST request.

Yes, I've seen a site which uses HTTP POST for the data and GET
for the session key parallely. I've used netcat, but that takes
its time.

[...] if maybe ext3fs wasn't a better pick, or jfs, or maybe reiserfs, oh but
what about xfs, and if only i had waited until reiser4 was ready... in the be-
ginning, there was ffs, and in the middle, there was ffs, and at the end, there
was still ffs, and the sys admins knew it was good. :)  -- Ted Unangst ├╝ber *fs
