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) 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.
