|-c||Check for the existence of an article before writing references to it to the tape files. Currently, this option can only be used with a tradspool article store. Using it with any other spool format will lead to all articles being dropped.|
|-d outdir||Put the output file(s) into the directory outdir (defaults to pathtmp as set in inn.conf). When also specifying -m, the temporary output files will still be put here before being moved into their final location.|
|-e peer||Only process entries for peer.|
|-h||Display a short help screen.|
|-m||Directly append to tape files in innfeeds backlog directory.|
|-q||Quiet mode: only display error messages.|
|-s spooldir||Use spooldir as the location of the article spool (defaults to patharticles as set in inn.conf). This option has an effect only on a tradspool storage system when also specifying -c.|
|-t backlogdir||Use backlogdir as the location of the innfeed backlog directory (the directory where the created tape files will be put). Defaults to pathspool/innfeed. This option has an effect only when also specifying -m.|
|-u||Unlink the input batchfile after processing.|
Take the file innfeed-dropped.B012345, process its lines appending to tapefiles in innfeeds backlog directory, and remove it when done. Be verbose while doing so:
procbatch -umv innfeed-dropped.B012345
Go through innfeed-dropped.B012345 saving entries for peer1 in /tmp/peer1.tmp, but only if the articles are still available in the local tradspool:
procbatch -e peer1 -d /tmp -c innfeed-dropped.B012345
procbatch should be able to check for the existence of articles with any kind of article store, possibly using grephistory.
