This file lists preprocessor macros (symbols) which are tested in the
code (typically with ifdef).

Does not include
- symbols defined and documented in userdefs.h
- symbols expected to be set by compiler to indicate system type or
  compiler features
- many symbols set and used only in connection with the ./configure
  mechanism - the full and current list can be found in config.hin
  (as a template) or, after running ./configure, in lynx_cfg.h.
- most symbols and macros defined in the source code

***Not complete.***

A. Symbols primarily to enable compilation on specific systems
==============================================================
See also under B for things needed by some systems.

# if you have an SVR4 system with the "type any key" problem, try defining
#
# -DSVR4_BSDSELECT

---
Ports have been added for Win32 (95/NT) and 386 DOS computers with a
packet driver.  I created four new defines to accomplish this.
	_WINDOWS Defined for Win32 specific code (Mostly TCP related)
	DJGPP    Defined for 386 specific code (Mostly TCP related)
	DOSPATH  Defined for any DOS'ish computer
	NOSIGHUP Defined for computers not supporting sighup signal calls.

Added for 8+3 filesystems (DOS):
	FNAMES_8_3  also defined in userdefs.h if __DJGPP__

* incorporate changes for win32 by Hiroyuki Senshu <senshu@shonai-cit.ac.jp>
  (SH) from
    ftp://crab.it.osha.sut.ac.jp/pub/Win32/develope/senshu/Lynx/
  Most changes are ifdef'd
    #define _WIN_CC=    .... for Windows C Compiler
    #define CJK_EX      .... CJK EXtension
    #define SH_EX       .... Senshu Hiroyuki EXtension
    #define WIN_EX      .... Windows EXtension


B. Symbols to enable or disable specific features, mostly
=========================================================
Note that some of these may be only usable on some system types,
most were originally for UNIX.

Network related, specific protocols

-------------------------
Using curses or ncurses library:

# -DFANCY_CURSES   whether curses lib supports more than very basic stuff
                   for UNIX handled by ./configure, for VMS defined in code
# -DNO_KEYPAD (old) or HAVE_KEYPAD (new)   whether curses lib uses keypad().
                   for UNIX handled by ./configure, may be set in HTUtils.h
# -DCOLOR_CURSES    whether curses lib supports color (in the right way).
                   for UNIX handled by ./configure
86
# -DUSE_COLOR_STYLE (see INSTALLATION, Section II-1c) needs SVr4 curses
87 88 89 90 91
# -DUNDERLINE_LINKS  Define if you want links underlined instead of bold.
# -DNO_SIZECHANGE (old) or HAVE_SIZECHANGE (new) whether using code to detect
                   new size after size changes of the terminal (window).
                   for UNIX handled by ./configure, may be set in HTUtils.h
# -DUSE_SCROLLBAR  supports scrollbar when built with ncurses
92
# -DWIDEC_CURSES   whether curses lib supports wide/multibyte characters.
93 94 95 96 97 98 99

Using slang library:
# -DUSE_SLANG      (see INSTALLATION, Section II-1c)

Other general
-------------
# -DIGNORE_CTRL_C  Define if Control-C shouldn't exit lynx.
100
# -DINACTIVE_INPUT_STYLE_VH  Different style for showing inactive text fields
101 102
# -DNO_DUMP_WITH_BACKSPACES Disables -with_backspaces code

104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148

Untested
--------
# -DNO_EXTENDED_HTMLDTD	Disable some "SortaSGML" code, see SGML.c
# -DWIND_DOWN_STACK Aggressive handling of end tags for "TagSoup", SGML.c

C. Secondary symbols
====================
Some macros that are not primary, i.e. they are normally automatically
set or unset in the code based on other macros (including those from
./configure), but it may be sometimes useful to set them differently.
They may directly affect several source files.  Filenames show where
they are set.  Normally installers shouldn't have to care about these
symbols.

COOKIE_FILE		LYMain.c	default cookie file in HOME dir
SHOW_WHEREIS_TARGETS	LYCurses.h	whereis search highlighting
USE_KEYMAPS		LYCurses.h	use of .lynx-keymaps files

D. Symbols defined locally to modify some behavior
==================================================
Defined in the source files to which they apply.  Only filenames are listed,
the files would have to be read and edited anyway to change the definition.
Normally installers shouldn't have to care about any of these symbols.
