I found the W3M browser searching in Internet and compiled (after
some problem) for muLinux. It is only 230k and support: colors, buttons,
table and frames! Exploring the source, I found that it uses LU matrix
factorization to achieve results! Oh, mon dieu: to understand its
code requires a solid knowledge in Linear Algebra and Numerical
Calculus, exams I done many,many years past :-)

In older muLinux releases, a small lynx was on the first floppy.
Next, I moved lynx to EXT addon. It is time to put w3m (a true
console browser) on the first floppy. A this point, maybe I will
remove lynx. I already tampered the code, removing the "-lm"
linking, and introducing my rustic self-made math library math.c
(the first floppy has no libm).

Akinori Ito is a very incredible man. Arigato to Akinori-san,
because it release the code in the public domain, for the sake
of the humanity.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
