Another tty-based browser (Beta)

I just put my tty-based browser up for ftp. This is a Beta release (I guess I'll find out just how beta it is :-). It's written in perl, so you may also need to pick up perl.

You can get the browser via ftp from, in pub/w3browser/w3browser-0.1.shar.

It's a shar file, so unpack with

			sh w3browser-0.1.shar

and it will create files in your current directory.

I've included my own version of (normally a standard perl distribution file, I think), because I found a bug in ours. I'll check after thanksgiving to see if there's a more recent version with an official bug fix.

Use, enjoy, comment, and flame.
