Manual Reference Pages - NEWSMAIL (8)
recenews, recpnews - receive mailed news
bdecode - decode encoded mailed news
/usr/local/libexec/cnews/input/bdecode [ file ]
Sometimes it is necessary to transmit news via mail,
to deal with network connections that have no notion of arbitrary file
transfer or non-mail traffic.
These programs handle reception of such traffic.
Recenews receives encoded news,
decodes it, and feeds it to rnews (see rnews(8CN)).
Recpnews does likewise for mail protected with N.
Normally one should arrange that mail arriving at the mailbox enews
is sent to recenews
and likewise for rnews (the name is historical, for compatibility
again) and recpnews.
Bdecode passes standard input, or the file if there is one, to standard
output, decoding the bencode encoding and stripping off
debris prepended and appended by mailers.
