SYNOPSIS

explode [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION

Explode reads a master batch file produced by relaynews(8CN) and writes all the plain batch files described therein. Explode should be run in /var/news, since the input file will almost certainly contain path names relative to /var/news.

The format of the input file(s) is




# optional comments
<82756@uunet.uu.net> news/admin/12435 2097
F out.going/site1/togo
f /var/news/out.going/site2/togo
n out.nntp/site3
I out.going/site4.wehave/togo




where 2097 is the article size in bytes, and where there is one <message-id> line per article and an F, f, n or I line per site getting that article.
