NAME
newsetup - a program to set up a .newsrc file
SYNOPSIS
newsetup
DESCRIPTION
The newsetup program creates a new .newsrc file containing all of the currently active newsgroups. It tries to put them in a reasonable order, i.e. local newsgroups earlier, but you'll probably want to change the ordering anyway (if you use rn) in order to put interesting newsgroups first. If you already have a .newsrc, it will be backed up with the name ".oldnewsrc".
ENVIRONMENT
DOTDIR Where to put your .newsrc, if not in your home directory. Default: $HOME HOME Your home directory. Default: $LOGDIR LOGDIR Your home directory if HOME is undefined.
FILES
/usr/lib/news/active or a reasonable facsimile ${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc
SEE ALSO
rn(1), newsrc(5)
