SYNOPSIS

newsetup

DESCRIPTION

The newsetup program creates a new .newsrc file containing an list of recommended newsgroups for the first time user. If your news admin has specified such a list (usually in the file NEWSLIB/subscriptions) trn will use that as a default for your .newsrc. Otherwise you get a ridiculously small list that you’ll want to add to using the a pattern command in trn (such as a linux). If you already have a .newsrc, it will be backed up with the name

ENVIRONMENT

DOTDIR Where to put your .newsrc, if not in your home directory.

Default: $HOME

HOME Your home directory.

Default: $LOGDIR

LOGDIR Your home directory if HOME is undefined.

FILES

/usr/lib/news/subscriptions or a reasonable facsimile
${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc
