    elinks - lynx-like alternative character mode WWW browser


    elinks [ options ] url



    ELinks is a text mode WWW browser, supporting colors, table rendering, background downloading, menu driven configuration interface, tabbed browsing and slim code.

    Frames are supported. You can have different file formats associated with external viewers. mailto: and telnet: are supported via external clients.

    ELinks can handle local (file://) or remote (http://, ftp:// or https:// if there's compiled-in SSL support) URLs. It has also basic support for finger:.  


    Most options can be set in the user interface or config file, so usually you do not need to care about them. Note that this list is by no means complete and it is not kept up-to-date. To get complete list of commandline options, start ELinks with parameter --help.

    -anonymous [0|1] (default: 0)
    Restrict ELinks so that it can run on an anonymous account. No local file browsing, no downloads. Execution of viewers is allowed, but user can't add or modify entries in association table.
    -auto-submit [0|1] (default: 0)
    Go and submit the first form you'll stumble upon.
    -base-session <num> (default: 0)
    ID of session (ELinks instance) which we want to clone. This is internal ELinks option, you don't want to use it.
    -confdir <str> (default: "")
    Set the config dir to the given path. ELinks will read its config files and writes to it. If the path begins with a '/' its used as an absolute path. Else it is assumed to be relative to your HOME dir.
    -conffile <str> (default: "elinks.conf")
    Name of the file with configuration, from which and to which all the configuration shall be written. It should be relative to confdir.
    -default-mime-type (alias for mime.default_type)
    Default MIME type to assume for documents of unknown type.
    -dump [0|1] (default: 0)
    Write a plain-text version of the given HTML document to stdout.
    -dump-charset (alias for document.dump.codepage)
    Codepage used in dump output.
    -dump-width (alias for document.dump.width)
    Width of the dump output.
    Specify elinks.conf config options on the command-line: -eval 'set protocol.file.allow_special_files = 1'
    This makes ELinks assume that the files it sees are HTML. This is equivalent to -default-mime-type text/html.
    -?, -h, -help
    Print usage help and exit.
    Print detailed usage help and exit.
    Print help on configuration options and exit.
    Look up specified host.
    -no-connect [0|1] (default: 0)
    Run ELinks as a separate instance instead of connecting to an existing instance. Note that normally no runtime state files (bookmarks, history and so on) are written to the disk when this option is used. See also -touch-files.
    -no-home [0|1] (default: 0)
    Don't attempt to create and/or use home rc directory (~/.elinks).
    -session-ring <num> (default: 0)
    ID of session ring this ELinks session should connect to. ELinks works in so-called session rings, whereby all instances of ELinks are interconnected and share state (cache, bookmarks, cookies, and so on). By default, all ELinks instances connect to session ring 0. You can change that behaviour with this switch and form as many session rings as you want. Obviously, if the session-ring with this number doesn't exist yet, it's created and this ELinks instance will become the master instance (that usually doesn't matter for you as a user much). Note that you usually don't want to use this unless you're a developer and you want to do some testing - if you want the ELinks instances each running standalone, rather use the -no-connect command-line option. Also note that normally no runtime state files are written to the disk when this option is used. See also -touch-files.
    -source [0|1] (default: 0)
    Write the given HTML document in source form to stdout.
    -stdin [0|1] (default: 0)
    Open stdin as an HTML document - this is fully equivalent to: -eval 'set protocol.file.allow_special_files = 1' file:///dev/stdin Use whichever suits you more ;-). Note that reading document from stdin WORKS ONLY WHEN YOU USE -dump OR -source!! (I would like to know why you would use -source -stdin, though ;-)
    -touch-files [0|1] (default: 0)
    Set to 1 to have runtime state files (bookmarks, history, ...) changed even when -no-connect or -session-ring is used; has no effect if not used in connection with any of these options.
    Print ELinks version information and exit.

    ELinks is known to work on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, IRIX, HPUX, Digital Unix, AIX, OS/2, BeOS and RISC OS. Port for Win32 is in state of beta testing.
