nntpsend.ctl - List of sites to feed via nntpsend
The file pathetc
/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list of sites to be
fed by nntpsend
. 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
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 the
batch file. If this field is empty, no truncation is performed. This field may
be of the form " maxsize
", in which case it
is passed to shrinkfile
as "-m maxsize
"; otherwise it is of the form "
", in which case it is passed as "-s
The fourth field specifies some default flags passed to innxmit
that the flag -a
is always given to innxmit
and need not appear
here. If no -t
flag is given in this field or on the nntpsend
command line, "-t 180" will be given to innxmit
