You could do something like that as an external-viewer, but that would
involve running another copy of lynx as a subprocess (not good for
navigation, since you'd have to exit the subprocess to return to the
process containing the history up to that point).

And the subprocess would not inherit the cokies, would it ?


The only thing analogous to reading a script is the provision for running
an external editor in textarea's (which would-be-nice-if the same feature
worked in any string-prompt).

Perhaps what you're looking for is some hybrid of those two areas
(requiring new code to support it).

Assuming a patch implementing the back-quote expansion in the goto URL
prompt, or something similar, would such a pach be accepted ?


Of course, one may imagine that this behaviour is disabled by default
and can be enalbled through a configuration option.

right - it should be configurable
