Re: passing xterm parameters

i have several lynx sessions that are being piped to text files,

session w/ the window opened to at least the row/column width of
the web page of interest. i wish to have these lynx sessions run
as a cron job without having to open an xterm session. i am sure
there are environment variables set for the number of rows and colunms
in the xterm session that are passed to lynx when lynx is called
from the xterm command line. how can i pass these parameters to lynx
such that the script can be started via a cron job and never have
to have an xterm session open?
If you are doing this as a way to periodically download pages, wget is a
much better choice. "man wget" will show all the options available,
from just getting the page, to getting everything needed to view the
page, to downloading an entire site.
Lynx is really more of an interactive browser.
