        Quoth Mike McClain:
        'As per your suggestion I put this in ~/.mailcap:
        text/plain; cat %s; copiousoutput'

The first field (the part before ;) identifies the type of file.  This
entry instructs mail (and lynx) how to treat 'text/plain' files, not
ruby files.

        'When that didn't help I created ~/.lynxcap with the same
        .lynxcap is my invention.  To get lynx to use it one must add:


to lynx.cfg; lynx uses .mailcap by default.

        'Reading up on mailcap led to mime.types and in /etc/mime.types
commenting out this line:
    #application/x-ruby                             rb
allowed lynx to open ruby source files.'

        Lines that begin with # are comments, not acted upon.  I would
have tried:

        text/rb;        less %s
