(more than one group can be given, with groups separated by commas but no
Then it prompts for the articles subject.
drops the user into his choice of text editor

When the editor terminates,
it checks that the article has been edited
reasonably, and then posts it.
If the article has not been written out from the editor, or if the
editing instructions in the prototype do not appear to have been
followed, postnews gives the user a choice between abandoning
the posting or re-editing it.
-h option specifies that a suitable header has already been constructed and
can be found in headerfile, in which case postnews bypasses
the initial prompting for header contents.
