For the Linux version, whats the difference?
I am sure I have quite successfully downloaded a number of binary files
Only problem I have is sometimes Lynx will abort a long transfer without
displaying any error message, so the user is left with an smaller the
desired file and wondering why it is currupt. There is a long standing
bug report against Lynx on this, including a patch (I don't think it has
ever been integrated but I haven't got any response from the maintainer,
So, whenever you download a file with Lynx, check that the destination
file size is correct.
