I forget - thanks to Rick Kwan, the line mode browser now works again, right?

>Mr. Nielsen,

>I just checked out and built libwww version 5.2.9, and evidently www will

>The line mode browser is not currently compiled as

>Your help is greatly appreciated!
>My question is: what is the most recent version of the libwww code
>with which www still compiles?  Also, is the bug in www that I 
>described above fixed in the last working version?
>Thank you very much.
