links web browser


Hi all,

I happen to use "links" the web browser in terminal quite a bit when I am researching as I like to skip all the graphics and get directly to the info in question.

I am trying to figure out what the correct command and syntax is while inside links to output the html, php page to a plain text file and save it locally. I know that there is a -dump command. I don't understand how to use it though. I would like to be able to take pages on the go in my Palm device and save room on my sd card(s) as well.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

trox

Inside (e)links: ALT+f,d (save as formatted document).

Outside (e)links: links -dump "http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=569803". Don't forget to quote (or escape chars) the URI if you encounter chars in your URI your shell may interprete as job control, wildcards or similar.
