ELINKS(1)			     The Elinks text-browser				ELINKS(1)

NAME
       elinks - lynx-like alternative character mode WWW browser

SYNOPSIS
       elinks [OPTION]... [URL]...

DESCRIPTION
       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 both local files and remote URLs. The main supported remote URL
       protocols are HTTP, HTTPS (with SSL support compiled in) and FTP. Additional protocol
       support exists for BitTorrent finger, Gopher, SMB and NNTP.

       The homepage of ELinks can be found at <http://elinks.cz/>, where the ELinks manual is
       also hosted.

OPTIONS
       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 roughly equivalent to the output of running
       ELinks with the option --long-help.

       -anonymous [0|1] (default: 0)
	   Restricts ELinks so it can run on an anonymous account. Local file browsing,
	   downloads, and modification of options will be disabled. Execution of viewers is
	   allowed, but entries in the association table can't be added or modified.

       -auto-submit [0|1] (default: 0)
	   Automatically submit the first form in the given URLs.

       -base-session <num> (default: 0)
	   Used internally when opening ELinks instances in new windows. The ID maps to
	   information that will be used when creating the new instance. You don't want to use
	   it.

       -config-dir <str> (default: "")
	   Path of the directory ELinks will read and write its config and runtime state files to
	   instead of ~/.elinks. If the path does not begin with a '/' it is assumed to be
	   relative to your HOME directory.

       -config-dump
	   Print a configuration file with options set to the built-in defaults to stdout.

       -config-file <str> (default: "elinks.conf")
	   Name of the configuration file that all configuration options will be read from and
	   written to. It should be relative to config-dir.

       -config-help
	   Print help for configuration options and exit.

       -default-mime-type (alias for mime.default_type)
	   The default MIME type used for documents of unknown type.

       -default-keys [0|1] (default: 0)
	   When set, all keybindings from configuration files will be ignored. It forces use of
	   default keybindings and will reset user-defined ones on save.

       -dump [0|1] (default: 0)
	   Print formatted plain-text versions of given URLs to stdout.

       -dump-charset (alias for document.dump.codepage)
	   Codepage used when formatting dump output.

       -dump-color-mode (alias for document.dump.color_mode)
	   Color mode used with -dump.

       -dump-width (alias for document.dump.width)
	   Width of the dump output.

       -eval
	   Specify configuration file directives on the command-line which will be evaluated
	   after all configuration files has been read. Example usage: -eval 'set
	   protocol.file.allow_special_files = 1'

       -force-html
	   Makes ELinks assume documents of unknown types are HTML. Useful when using ELinks as
	   an external viewer from MUAs. This is equivalent to -default-mime-type text/html.

       -?, -h, -help
	   Print usage help and exit.

       -localhost [0|1] (default: 0)
	   Restricts ELinks to work offline and only connect to servers with local addresses (ie.
	   127.0.0.1). No connections to remote servers will be permitted.

       -long-help
	   Print detailed usage help and exit.

       -lookup
	   Look up specified host and print all DNS resolved IP addresses.

       -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, etc.) are written to the
	   disk when this option is used. See also -touch-files.

       -no-home [0|1] (default: 0)
	   Disables creation and use of files in the user specific home configuration directory
	   (~/.elinks). It forces default configuration values to be used and disables saving of
	   runtime state files.

       -no-numbering (alias for document.dump.numbering)
	   Prevents printing of link number in dump output.

	   Note that this really affects only -dump, nothing else.

       -no-references (alias for document.dump.references)
	   Prevents printing of references (URIs) of document links in dump output.

	   Note that this really affects only -dump, nothing else.

       -remote
	   Control a remote ELinks instance by passing commands to it. The option takes an
	   additional argument containing the method which should be invoked and any parameters
	   that should be passed to it. For ease of use, the additional method argument can be
	   omitted in which case any URL arguments will be opened in new tabs in the remote
	   instance.

	   Following is a list of the supported methods:

	   o   ping(): look for a remote instance

	   o   openURL(): prompt URL in current tab

	   o   openURL(URL): open URL in current tab

	   o   openURL(URL, new-tab): open URL in new tab

	   o   openURL(URL, new-window): open URL in new window

	   o   addBookmark(URL): bookmark URL

	   o   infoBox(text): show text in a message box

	   o   xfeDoCommand(openBrowser): open new window

       -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)
	   Print given URLs in source form to stdout.

       -touch-files [0|1] (default: 0)
	   When enabled, runtime state files (bookmarks, history, etc.) are written to disk, even
	   when -no-connect or -session-ring is used. The option has no effect if not used in
	   conjunction with any of these options.

       -verbose <num> (default: 1)
	   The verbose level controls what messages are shown at start up and while running:

	   o   0 means only show serious errors

	   o   1 means show serious errors and warnings

	   o   2 means show all messages

       -version
	   Print ELinks version information and exit.

       Generated using output from ELinks version 0.12pre6.
