Thanks. I tried as you suggested but the switch is 
not supported by the version of lynx I have
(Lynx Version 2.8.3rel.1 (23 Apr 2000)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 0.9.6a
Built on linux-gnu Jun 13 2001 20:02:05)

I have the Debian dist. of linux and 'apt-get'ed lynx
from one of the dist. sites. Should I be using a different
version of lynx?

        For a while now, there's been an under-documented feature that does 
what you
        want.  Start lynx as:

        lynx -cmd_log=yourfile

        and do whatever it is you want automated.  Your keystrokes will be 
logged to
        "yourfile".  When and if you get to a point in the session where you'll 
want to
        take back control of lynx, I guess you'd have to "Q"uit lynx at that 
point, and
        then edit the log file to remove that "Q".  I don't believe you can 
turn off
        keystroke logging from within lynx, the way you can trace logging.

        Then starting with:

        lynx -cmd_script=yourfile

        will replay your desired keystrokes.
