Thanks Thomas for the reply.

It worked from the prompt :)

Now I am planning to replace lynx "main"  by " lynx_main"  and call from my program. Will it still work ?

Is there any compile time MACRO/option that can stop the display or any code change needed ?

One more query: While crawling how to set the depth of traversal ?

Thanks & Regards

I am using lynx as a crawler + text extractor.

By default, when crawling, lynx continuously keep displaying html pages on
terminal and save dump(plain text) in file.

But I do NOT want any display on the terminal. How to stop the terminal
display ?

Did you try redirecting the display to /dev/null?

For example

lynx -crawl -traversal -accept_all_cookies <URL>   >/dev/null
