LINKS 0.97 INSTALLATION
 
     A long time ago I came across a magazine that had a little blip about a console web browser, with table support, named Links.  I put the thought of downloading it on the back burner because I was still trying to figure out how to use Monkey’s default console web browser, Lynx.  Months later (May, 2002) I finally got around to compiling and installing Links version 0.97.  I must admit that I’m thoroughly impressed, and I wish I had installed it sooner.
 
     Okay, enough babbling and on to the install process.  First of all, download Links from artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~mikulas/links/download/.  Next, unpack the .tar.gz file like you would any other Monkey Linux software package (review software packages tutorial).  Finally, follow these directions to compile and install Links:
     cd /links-0.97       CHANGE TO LINKS SOURCE DIRECTORY
     sh ./configure       CONFIGURE LINKS IN THE BOURNE SHELL
     make                 COMPILE LINKS
     make install         INSTALL LINKS
     make clean           REMOVE LINKS OBJECT FILES
     make distclean       REMOVE FILES CONFIGURE CREATED
     Two files are installed, /usr/local/bin/links and /usr/local/man/man1/links.1.  Don’t bother trying to view the Links man page, because Monkey isn’t equipped with the necessary software to build it.  To run Links just type the ‘links’ command.  To view/hide the menu bar press the ‘Esc’ key.  When run in X, web-links are mouse enabled.
