NAME

       w3m - a text based Web browser and pager

SYNOPSIS

       w3m [options] [URL or filename]

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.  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.
