NAME

cvtbatch - Convert Usenet batch files to INN format

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

cvtbatch [-w items]

DESCRIPTION

cvtbatch reads standard input as a sequence of lines, converts each line, and writes it to standard output. It is used to convert simple batch files that contain just the storage API token of an article to INN batch files that contain additional information about each article.

Each line is taken as a storage API token indicating a Usenet article. Only the first word of each line is parsed; anything following whitespace is ignored. Lines not starting with a valid token are also silently ignored.

If the input file consists of a series of message-IDs, then use grephistory with the -s flag piped into cvtbatch.

OPTIONS

-w items The -w flag specifies how each output line should be written. The items for this flag should be chosen from the W flag items as specified in newsfeeds(5). They may be chosen from the following set:



    b    Size of the article in bytes.
    f    Storage API token of the article (same as "n").
    m    Article message-ID.
    n    Storage API token of the article.
    t    Arrival time of the article as seconds since epoch.



The default is nm, that is to say the storage API token followed by the message-ID of the article.
