I'd like to copy the current link to the system's clipboard or write it to a file.

If it isn't possible, I guess I'd have to settle with opening it in an external browser (which I was avoiding in the first place, thus using Lynx), and then copying the opened URL. :-/

Press Shift+g to show the address of the current document, Shift+e to show the address of the selected link. You can copy the text with your mouse (or the keyboard, if your terminal supports that).

Press a to save the address of a document or link to a (Netscape-alike) bookmark file, by default ~/lynx_bookmarks.html. You can open this in a different browser, it's just HTML.
