Elinks Remote Invocation

elinks can be used to open remote links similar to firefox.

elinks -remote "openURL(, new-tab"

Note how the arguments are not enclosed in double or single quotes. The remote option can also be used for the smart and dumb prefixes provided by elinks.

elinks -remote "openURL(g elinks man, new-tab"

The above command will use smart prefix 'g' to search google for "elinks man".

The elinks instance needs to be already running for the remote option to work.
