CNEWSDO(8CN)							  CNEWSDO(8CN)

NAME
       cnewsdo - run C News maintenance	commands

SYNOPSIS
       cnewsdo command [argument ...]

DESCRIPTION
       Cnewsdo	runs  any  of  the  C  News  maintenance  commands  (see news-
       maint(8CN))--or indeed any command in the normal	C  News	 shell	search
       path--after  first  setting  up a suitable PATH and umask, and checking
       that the	commands are being run under the same user id  that  owns  the
       active file (see	newsdb(5)).

       This  is	essentially a convenience, especially for novice news adminis-
       trators and those who believe there is special virtue in	being able  to
       invoke  various	kinds of administrative	functionality through a	single
       command.

SEE ALSO
       newsmaint(8CN)

DIAGNOSTICS
       ``running as `abc', should be running as	`def'''	means that cnewsdo  is
       being  run as abc, but def owns the active file (and therefore, presum-
       ably, the rest of the news system).

HISTORY
       Written at U of Toronto by Henry	Spencer	and Geoff Collyer.

BUGS
       Arguably, most any problem addressed by cnewsdo should be addressed  by
       news-administrator education instead.
