- Subject: Lynx - Unable to Shell
When I attempt to shell out from Lynx the message "Spawning your default
shell. Use 'exit' to return to Lynx." flashes briefly but nothing else
seems to happen. Upon exiting Lynx after browsing the message "Spawning
your default shell. Use 'exit' to return to Lynx." is visible between
the lynx command line and the most recent prompt line.
The uname command returns:
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 anon 1.5.12(0.116/4/2) 2004-11-10 08:34 i686 unknown
The version information for lynx is:
Lynx Version 2.8.4rel.1 (17 Jul 2001)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 0.9.7b

I realize I can open another window but curious why the shell command
is not working.
