Description Piotr Hosowicz 2007-09-28 10:31:33 EDT
Description of problem:

I was trying to make lynx dump TXT reperesentation of HTML page passed to lynx
to stdin. THis is one of the forms I tried. I treid to execute it with LANG=en,
but I received always polish message, my locale id polish (pl_PL). "Naruszenie
ochrony pamięci" means "Violation of memory protection" in english.

--- from console start

$ echo test | lynx -dump -- -
Looking up  '-dump' first
Looking up  'www.-dump.com', guessing...
Naruszenie ochrony pamięci

--- from console end
