RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for overview.fmt (redhat section 5)

OVERVIEW.FMT(5) 								  OVERVIEW.FMT(5)

NAME
       overview.fmt - format of news overview database

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  <pathetc in inn.conf>/overview.fmt specifies the organization of the news over-
       view database.  Blank lines and lines beginning with a number sign  (``#'')  are  ignored.
       The  order of lines in this file is important; it determines the order in which the fields
       will appear in the database.

       Most lines will consist of an article header name, optionally  followed	by  a  colon.	A
       trailing  set  of  lines can have the word ``full'' appear after the colon; this indicates
       that the header should appear as well as its value.

       If this file is changed, new overview records will be constructed with the  modified  for-
       mat.  If it is desired to update existing records, it is necessary to rebuild the existing
       overview database using makehistory(8) after removing all existing overview files.

       ``Xref:full'' must be included, or innd(8)  and	other  programs  which	utilize  overview
       method cannot start.

       The default file, show below, is compatible with Geoff Collyer's ``nov'' package:
	      Subject:
	      From:
	      Date:
	      Message-ID:
	      References:
	      Bytes:
	      Lines:
	      Xref:full

       Usually	the  only modifications which should be made to the default file are additions of
       new fields to the end of the file; all such fields should have ``full'' after  the  colon.
       The first eight fields should remain in the same order as above.

HISTORY
       Written	by  Rich  $alz	<rsalz@uunet.uu.net> for InterNetNews.	Intended to be compatible
       with the nov package written by Geoff Collyer  <geoff@world.std.com>.   This  is  revision
       1.6.6.3, dated 2002/01/05.
