NAME

       w3m - a text based Web browser and pager


SYNOPSIS

       w3m [options] [URL or filename]

       Use "w3m -h" to display a complete list of current options.


DESCRIPTION

       w3m  is  a  World  Wide Web (WWW) text based client. It has English and
       Japanese help files and an option menu and can  be  configured  to  use
       either language. It will display hypertext markup language (HTML) docu-
       ments containing links to files residing on the local system,  as  well
       as  files  residing  on  remote systems. It can display HTML tables and
       frames.  In addition, it can be used as a "pager" in much the same man-
       ner as "more" or "less".  Current versions of w3m run on Unix (Solaris,
       SunOS, HP-UX, Linux, FreeBSD, and EWS4800)  and  on  Microsoft  Windows
       9x/NT.
