Best to use a local file.

There is a compile option for this (put it into userdefs.h).

If you can add an argument to lynx, say lynx . or lynx ./file to avoid startup failure.

I know the Lynx documentation says that Lynx will refuse to start if the 
specified startfile is not available. But, is there a easy way to override or 
control/change this behavior? In my case I am running Lynx in an embedded 
environment and it is occasionally the case that the server is not accessible. 
After Lynx has started this does not seem to be a problem - I think it gives an 
error in the status line and the last page is re-displayed. But, at startup 
Lynx just exits if it can't find the page and since Lynx is running as a system 
process it is rather hard to recover for this.

Thanks in advance,
