OK, maybe not using the HTML file but can the previously mentioned command
syntax be used to pass data to a http://www.blah.blah.com/givemedata.cgi
I have a windows machine with a page that we need to pass data to it and
submit the form. I was hoping that the linux box can do it via lynx as I've
seen it done before but can't remember how it was done.
