NAME
       cvtbatch - convert Usenet batch file to INN format

SYNOPSIS
       cvtbatch [ -w items ]

DESCRIPTION
       Cvtbatch  reads	standard input as a series of lines, converts each line, and writes it to
       standard output.  It is used to convert simple batchfiles that contain  just  the  article
       name to INN batchfiles that contain additional information about each article.

       Each  line  is  taken as the pathname to a Usenet article.  If it is not an absolute path-
       name, it is taken relative to the spool directory, <patharticles in inn.conf>.  (Only  the
       first word of each line is parsed; anything following whitespace is ignored.)

OPTIONS
       -w     The  ``-w''  flag  specifies how each output line should be written.  The items for
	      this flag should be chosen from the ``W'' flag items as specified in  newsfeeds(5).
	      They may be chosen from the following set:
		   b	Size of article in bytes
		   f	full pathname of article
		   m	article message-id
		   n	relative pathname of article

       If  the	input file consists of a series of Message-ID's, then use grephistory(1) with the
       ``-s'' flag piped into cvtbatch.
