wApua is a browser for WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) pages written in the Wireless Markup Language (WML). It supports WML 1.1 and 1.2 except forms.

It is written in Perl and uses the Perl/Tk library for its GUI and libwww-perl for the network parts. So it supports all transport protocols, libwww-perl (LWP) supports.


-h, --help, --usage

-v, --version
Shows the version of wApua.
-d n, --debug=n

The system-wide default configuration can be changed in wApua::Config

Per-user configuration can be done by creating a .wApuarc file on Linux and other UNIX derivatives or clones or a wApua.ini file on Windows and MacOS 9 in your home directory.

See the example configuration wApua.rc which comes with wApua.
