SYNOPSIS

newsgroups pattern flag

DESCRIPTION

The newsgroups program compares your .newsrc file with the file of active newsgroups, and prints a list of unsubscribed newsgroups matching pattern. If the second argument flag is present, only newsgroups not found in your .newsrc are listed, and the display is not paged. If the second argument is missing, the display is paged, and an additional list of unsubscribed newsgroups occurring in your .newsrc is printed.

ENVIRONMENT

DOTDIR Where to find 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/active or a reasonable facsimile
${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc

SEE ALSO
