Hi .... I am working on a project to port Lynx to Trimedia (an embedded system plateform).... I am complete beginner with Lynx... I have its code and now I want to know how and where should I start to understand the code.. Can I get some help regarding this or can I obtain developer documentation from somewhere?

The files in the source-tree are about all the documentation that exists.
Since it's an embedded system, I'd assume you're going to cross-compile.
Lynx's configure script might work for that - I made some changes a few
years ago to allow the utility in src/chrtrans to be built/run with the
build-machine's compiler, but don't have a cross-development environment that can build the whole application. (I did some of this using a djgpp cross-compiler that is able to build ncurses).

Besides lynx, you'll need something like ncurses (even slang).

Best thing to do is to build a copy on a machine that's easy to build on, i.e., no cross-compiling, and see what the pieces are.
