LYNX SUPPORT FOR SOCKETSHR/NETLIB 28-AUG-1996
---------------------------------
What is SocketShr?
------------------
SOCKETSHR is Eckhart Meyer's socket library interface to the MadGoat NETLIB
package, which provides a vendor-independent interface to the VMS TCP/IP
transports. Using this, the same image will run over any of the available
packages, including UCX, Multinet, CMU, Pathway access and TCPWARE.
SocketShr and NETLIB are separately available libraries that MUST be installed
before LYNX can use them.
How to get NETLIB and SOCKETSHR
-------------------------------
FTP:
ftp://ftp.kcl.ac.uk/default/socketshr.*
ftp://ftp.wku.edu/fileserv/socketshr.zip

Preliminary Setup of SOCKETSHR
------------------------------
Once SOCKETSHR has been installed, TWO logical names should be defined:
SOCKETSHR Point to the appropriate shareable image
SOCKETSHR_LIBRARY Point to the directory containing SOCKETSHR.H
and IOCTL.H
Both should be defined /system /exec
Building LYNX
-------------
Run the BUILD.COM procedures and select the SOCKETSHR_TCP option. This will
build an image that will run over the SOCKETSHR/NETLIB routines.
