Edbrowse is sometimes described as dense in its code and in its human interface. It contains many cryptic one and two letter commands, and few interactive help facilities. So it is important that you read the user's guide before you take edbrowse out for a spin. (Also available in French.) Remember, this manual describes the C version of edbrowse; the perl version will be lacking in many areas.
Even the C version is a work in progress. It does not support dynamic document objects, digest authentication, or imap, to name a few. My time is limited, and I am always looking for developers to help me with this project. I am particularly interested in porting the C to Windows, and support for Spanish, German, Italian, and other languages. Please let me know if you can help.
This is intended for Unix-like platforms. You'll need the packages pcre-devel and openssl-devel to compile this program. If you didn't say yes to "Software Development" at time of installation, these may not be present on your system, but they should be on your master disks. Version 3 requires SMJS from Mozilla.org. All this is described in the README file.
The commandline list, hosted at Yahoo Groups, is a place to discuss edbrowse and other command-line applications in general. It is friendly and informal. You may subscribe by sending a message to email@example.com.
