Lynx invokes a built-in Line Editor for entering strings in response to prompts, in forms, and for email messages if an external editor has not been defined. Administrators can offer alternate key bindings by adding them in LYEditmap.c before compiling Lynx, and they can be selected via the 'o'ptions menu. This is the Default Binding:
