NAME
       cvtbatch	- Convert Usenet batch files to	INN format

SYNOPSIS
       cvtbatch	[-w items]

DESCRIPTION
       cvtbatch	reads standard input as	a sequence of lines, converts each
       line, and writes	it to standard output.	It is used to convert simple
       batch files that	contain	just the storage API token of an article to
       INN batch files that contain additional information about each article.

       Each line is taken as a storage API token indicating a Usenet article.
       Only the	first word of each line	is parsed; anything following
       whitespace is ignored.  Lines not starting with a valid token are also
       silently	ignored.

       If the input file consists of a series of message-IDs, then use
       grephistory with	the -s flag piped into cvtbatch.

OPTIONS
       -w items
	   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 the	article	in bytes.
	       f    Storage API	token of the article (same as "n").
	       m    Article message-ID.
	       n    Storage API	token of the article.
	       t    Arrival time of the	article	as seconds since epoch.

	   The default is "nm",	that is	to say the storage API token followed
	   by the message-ID of	the article.
