LINKS(1)                                                              LINKS(1)

       links - lynx-like alternative character mode WWW browser

       links [options] URL

       links  is  a  text  mode WWW browser with ncurses interface, supporting
       colors, correct table rendering, background  downloading,  menu  driven
       configuration interface and slim code.

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

       links can handle local (file://) or remote (http:// or ftp://) URLs.

       Most  options  can be set in the user interface or config file, so usu-
       ally you do not need to care about them.

       -g     Run Links in graphics mode. If not given, Links will run in text
              mode.   Running in graphics mode means that Links will probe all
              compiled-in graphics devices and run on the first found. If none
              found,  links  will not run in text mode. This option works only
              if --enable-graphics was given to ./configure.

              Pass a parameter to the graphics driver.  On  SVGAlib,  this  is
              widthxheightxdepth,  (where  depth  is 16, 256, 32K, 64K, 16M or
              16M32) and defines the graphics mode, on X the format is widthx-
              height and defines the window size.
