NAME
nfpipe - Insert articles into a notesfile
SYNOPSIS
nfpipe topic [ -t title ] [ -d ] [ -a ]
DESCRIPTION
Nfpipe reads standard input to create a note in the specified notesfile. The title of the note is specified using the -t parameter. The -d flag specifies that this note is to have the director message flag set; if the author has no director privileges in the notesfile, this flag has no effect. Specifying -a makes the note anonymous; if anonymous notes are not permitted this flag has no effect.
