NAME

abaco, readweb – browse the World–Wide Web

SYNOPSIS

abaco [ –p ] [ –c ncols ] [ –m mtpt ] [ –t charset ] [ url ]
readweb [ url ]

DESCRIPTION

Abaco is a lightweight web browser with the appearance of acme(1) with ncols columns (one by default). Given a url, it will start by displaying that page. Clicking mouse button 3 on a link opens it in a new abaco window. –t selects an alternate character set; –m an alternate mount point for webfs. Normally the standard error of subshells is closed, but –p prevents this.
Readweb imports the outside network, if necessary, starts webfs and webcookies and finally abaco.
