Linux 2.6 - man page for w3m (linux section 1)

W3M(1)											   W3M(1)

       w3m - a text based Web browser and pager

       w3m [options] [URL or filename]

       w3m  is	a  World Wide Web (WWW) text based client. It has English and Japanese help files
       and an option menu and can be configured to use either language. It will display hypertext
       markup  language  (HTML) documents containing links to files residing on the local system,
       as well as files residing on remote systems. It can display HTML tables	and  frames.   In
       addition,  it  can be used as a "pager" in much the same manner as "more" or "less".  Cur-
       rent versions of w3m run on Unix (Solaris, SunOS, HP-UX, Linux, FreeBSD, and EWS4800)  and
       on Microsoft Windows 9x/NT.

       At  start  up,  w3m  will load any local file or remote URL specified at the command line.
