You can always use Doug Kaufman's DOS compile of Lynx, which does support it.

httpS in arachne for DOS || 16 vs 32 bit

> it's possible use openSSL for permitt a arachne to acess to HTTPS

Problem:

- Arachne uses 16-bit RM and has 16-bit RM hacks
- OpenSSL has no 16-bit hacks and probably won't compile to 16-bit

Thus, porting Arachne to 32-bit is needed first. :-|

Borland C & DPMI16, from 1995. Also WATTCP (not 32). The docfile reads as though it was written back then - it says without qualification that WIN87EM.DLL should be installed, i.e., assumes flatly that the prog will be running on a machine with no hardware FPU.
