Hi William,

if you have some problems with synclang, then try this patch:


It is the same as


but it does not need to run synclang after that. The only difference is,
that this patch has 65kB. It is diff'ing all language files in intl 
directory, which is normally generated by synclang. 

Anyway. It seems that synclang needs to be fixed, if it has some problems
on Sun.

Oh. BTW, there is one more difference. You can also paste by pressing 
middle-mouse-button only without shift, which is my preference. I think 
authors of Links prefere this with shift only. It can be changed back 
to author's preference in x.c, line 704:

	if (event.xbutton.state & ShiftMask)
