NAME

newsetup - a program to set up a .newsrc file

SYNOPSIS

newsetup

DESCRIPTION

The newsetup program creates a new .newsrc file containing an list of recommended newsgroups for the first time user. If your news admin has specified such a list (usually in the file NEWSLIB/subscriptions) trn will use that as a default for your .newsrc. Otherwise you get a ridiculously small list that you’ll want to add to using the "a pattern" command in trn (such as "a linux"). If you already have a .newsrc, it will be backed up with the name ".newsrc-old".

ENVIRONMENT

DOTDIR

Where to put your .newsrc, if not in your home directory.

Default: $HOME

HOME

Your home directory.

Default: $LOGDIR

LOGDIR

Your home directory if HOME is undefined.

FILES

/var/lib/news/subscriptions or a reasonable facsimile
${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc

SEE ALSO

trn(1), rn(1), newsrc(5)
