SYNOPSIS

cnewsdo command [argument ...]

DESCRIPTION

Cnewsdo runs any of the C News maintenance commands (see newsmaint(8CN))—or indeed any command in the normal C News shell search path—after first setting up a suitable PATH and umask, and checking that the commands are being run under the same user id that owns the active file (see newsdb(5)).

This is essentially a convenience, especially for novice news administrators and those who believe there is special virtue in being able to invoke various kinds of administrative functionality through a single command.

SEE ALSO

newsmaint(8CN)

DIAGNOSTICS

‘‘running as ‘abc’, should be running as ‘def’’’ means that cnewsdo is being run as abc, but def owns the active file (and therefore, presumably, the rest of the news system).

HISTORY

Written at U of Toronto by Henry Spencer and Geoff Collyer.

BUGS

Arguably, most any problem addressed by cnewsdo should be addressed by news-administrator education instead.
