	Does LYNX have a linking loader and command line access to the
global symbol table? Is it possible to invoke subroutines directly?
Is it possible to resolve strings to memory locations through subroutine
calls?

	LYNX does provide dynamic loading/unloading of device
drivers, but it does not let you dynamically link new object modules
into your running program (is this what you were looking for?).

	The LYNX command line shell is the standard unix shell 
(the GNU BASH shell actually). As such it does not provide interactive 
access to a 'global symbol table'. You can use GDB to access global
variable within a single process. You cannot invoke subroutines directly
unless you use a pseudo-shell such as 'tcl' which permits invocation
of subroutine commands. This interpreter could be used to call
subroutines which access local and vme memory via memory device
drivers (using mem, kmem, vmeXXdXX, etc device stubs).
