When I printed a page, as per the manual:
Printing, Mailing, and Saving rendered files to disk.
Rendered HTML documents, and plain text files, may be printed using the 'p' command while viewing the document. After pressing the 'p' key a menu of Print Options will be displayed.
It displayed quite differently when viewed again, from how lynx rendered it when browsing. The page is served from an IP phone, a Cisco/Linksys SPA 942 hard phone, which displays its settings through a web interface.
I just want to grab/crawl/scrape the settings page in the easiest way possible from lynx. I'm after, in particular, the settings for one of the extensions, so I have to click a few links to get to the right setting.
I tried the "print" option, but the formatting was very wrong. It's a simple web page, just forms. The print option jumbled everything together.
I could do a screen print from Firefox, but thought lynx might have some special capability here? Or, perhaps, just save page in Firefox, or some variant...
The page is quite long, so copying one "page" at a time from the terminal is clumsy. All in all, between the different settings, there are probably twenty pages, each twenty lynx "pages" long in the terminal.
Some version of
crawl to output them to file?
Printing to the "printer attached to the vt100 terminal" actually did quite well. As literally as possible "printed" to the terminal with just a small hiccup that it had trouble going past some empty fields -- but "page down" seemed (?) to work. Unfortunately, not able to print the actual page I'm after, can't seem to "click" a specific link...
