       w3m - a text based Web browser and pager


       w3m [options] [URL or filename]


       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) documents 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 manner 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.


       At  start  up,  w3m  will load any local file or remote URL specified at the command line.
       For help with runtime options, press "H" while running w3m.  Command line options are:
