       news - print news items

       news [ -a ] [ -n ] [ item ...  ]

       When  invoked  without  options,  this  simple  local  news service prints files that have
       appeared in /lib/news since last reading, most recent first,  with  each  preceded  by  an
       appropriate header.  The time of reading is recorded.  The options are

       -a     Print all items, regardless of currency.	The recorded time is not changed.

       -n     Report  the names of the current items without printing their contents, and without
	      changing the recorded time.

       Other arguments select particular news items.

       To post a news item, create a file in /lib/news.

       You may arrange to  receive  news  automatically  by  registering  your	mail  address  in
       /sys/lib/subscribers.  A daemon mails recent news to all addresses on the list.


	      modify time is time news was last read

	      who gets news mailed to them
