nntpsend.ctl - list of sites to feed via nntpsend
The file <--prefix=PREFIX at configure>/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list of sites
to be fed by nntpsend(8).
Comments begin with a number sign (``#'') and continue through the end of the line. Blank
lines and comments are ignored. All other lines should consist of four fields separated
by a colon.
The first field is the name of the site as specified in the newsfeeds(5) file.
The second field should be the hostname or IP address of the remote site.
The third field, if non-empty, specifies the default head truncation size of site's batch-
file. If this field is empty, no truncation is performed. If this field is of the form
``maxsize-truncsize'' then it is passed to shrinkfile as ``-m maxsize -s truncsize'', oth-
erwise is of the form ``truncsize'' then it is passed as ``-s truncsize''.
The fourth field specifies some default flags passed to innxmit(8). The flag ``-a'' is
always given to innxmit and need not appear hear. If no ``-t timeout'' flag is given in
this field and on the nntpsend command line, ``-t 180'' will be given to innxmit.
