[Lynx-dev] File Collisions

Is there any feature in lynx that adds a random file extention to
the name of a file one is about to save to make sure it is

        I use lynx to download books in the NLS Talking Book
program and it works well for this purpose but the file names are
based on a formula that can produce identical file names if the
files represent books from the same author or represent more than
one issue of a periodical or in one case can be two different
periodicals in which the formula produces the same set of letters
for both sets of periodicals.

        What I have been doing is typing 000, 001, etc, after
these names so no two files end up with the same name, but it
would be nice to automate the uniqueness so nothing gets

        For the sake of clarity, the formula I refer to is the
web site's method for generating file names.  I have no control
over that so any uniqueness will have to be generated here.
