Lynx without cookies

After moving from newsbeuter on Linux to newsboat on OpenBSD I ran into lynx asking about cookies everytime I opened a item in Lynx.

I decided to kick out all the cookies. This is how you can have Lynx reject all cookies.

Create a file `.lynx.cfg'

Add the following lines in ~/.lynx.cfg:

SET_COOKIES:FALSE
ACCEPT_ALL_COOKIES:FALSE
PERSISTENT_COOKIES:FALSE

Set the variabele LYNC_CFG in your .profile

LYNX_CFG=~/.lynx.cfg; export LYNX_CFG

Reload your .profile by logging out and in.

Now Lynx will automagically reject all cookies.
