EXPLODE(8CN)							  EXPLODE(8CN)

NAME
       explode	-  expand  a relaynews master batch file into all the ordinary
       batch files implied

SYNOPSIS
       explode [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Explode reads a master batch file produced by relaynews(8CN) and	writes
       all  the	plain batch files described therein.  Explode should be	run in
       /var/news, since	the input file	will  almost  certainly	 contain  path
       names relative to /var/news.

       The format of the input file(s) is

	    # optional comments
	    <82756@uunet.uu.net> news/admin/12435 2097
	    F out.going/site1/togo
	    f /var/news/out.going/site2/togo
	    n out.nntp/site3
	    I out.going/site4.wehave/togo

       where  2097  is the article size	in bytes, and where there is one <mes-
       sage-id>	line per article and an	F, f, n	or I  line  per	 site  getting
       that article.
