Resending (errored out last time):
I have ported WWWLib and LineMode to OS/2, but I have not kept up with the 
current versions.  My port was on version 3.0 (I think) and I have not done 
anything with newer versions.  I used IBM C++ and the IBM toolkit on Warp.  
My goal in porting was to create a DLL of functions for accessing the web 
(for a robot application) so I did not test every feature or do a whole lot 
with the Linemode other than try it out and use it to test the library.  If 
you want to see what I did, I'd be glad to show you, just send me a note.
