NAME
nfcomment - a user interface to the notesfile system
SYNOPSIS
nfcomment ( notesfile, text, title, dirflag, anonflag ) char *nfname, *text, *title; cc ... -lnfcom
DESCRIPTION
Nfcomment provides user programs with the ability to insert notes into a notesfile. The note is inserted into the notesfile specified by nfname. Text is the address of the body of the note; this must be null-terminated. If text is NULL, the note is gathered from standard input until an EOF is encountered. The note is entered with the title specified by the title parameter. If the dirflag or anonflag parameters are non-zero, the director message is enabled or the note is entered anonymously. These take effect only if the user has the appropriate priviledges in the notesfile. Nfpipe is used to make the actual insertion of the text.
