Hmm, reading the source code I see:
        viewer_pdf  = os.getenv ("PDFVIEWER"),
        viewer_ps   = os.getenv ("PSVIEWER"),
        viewer_dvi  = os.getenv ("DVIVIEWER"),
        viewer_html = os.getenv ("BROWSER"),
        viewer_txt  = os.getenv ("PAGER")

So I assume it should be simply

Best wishes

have to be mad to work here, but if you are it helps !!!' and slightly
smutty postcards from Ibiza get pinned up by snitterbies (q.v.)
