Re: [vox-tech] newbie annoyed with tin

OK, here's what I've got:


qy | lynx "https://secureweb.ucdavis.edu:443/cgi-auth/sendback?"\
-force_secure -accept_all_cookies -auth="login:password" > /dev/null

When I enter the file name at the command line I get this message:

/home/katie/bin/runtin: line 3: qy: command not found

and I'm back to the command line.  How do I fix this?
