lynx & dillo: how to manage cookies?

I'd like to be able to manage cookies in the browsers Lynx and Dillo but I don't know how.

Dillo: I've hit upon the cookie file but I can't understand what I need to add to allow cookies on a site.

I need to allow cookies in the private area of a CMS while building a site locally, off-line, so my URL is http://localhost/mylocalwebsite/

Many thanks in advance!

"Why doesn't Cookies work for me?
Please read Cookies.txt (also available in the tarball).
In a nutshell: Because of privacy considerations Dillo comes with cookies disabled by default. The above document explains it in detail.

Configuring cookies in Dillo is easy. For instance, some lines like these inside "~/.dillo/cookiesrc" could be enough to get you started:


Note: only the first Dillo instance, and all its child windows, will be cookies-enabled. If you launch another Dillo, it will disable cookies. This is a BUG and it will be fixed in the future, either by making cookies a plugin or by handling the race condition."
