NAME
       newinclude - create a binary mailing list from an :include: file

SYNOPSIS
       newinclude list

DESCRIPTION
       newinclude reads	a sendmail-style :include: file, list, and converts it
       into a binary format in list.bin	for use	by fastforward.

       newinclude first	writes the mailing list	to list.tmp, and then moves it
       to  list.bin.   If  there  is any problem creating list.tmp, newinclude
       leaves list.bin alone.

       newinclude always creates list.bin world-readable.

       COMPATIBILITY WARNING: sendmail reads list directly; fastforward	 needs
       list.bin.   sendmail's  strategy	is a disaster if you save list to disk
       at the same moment that sendmail	reads it; the list will	 be  truncated
       at a random spot, perhaps in the	middle of an address.  Furthermore, if
       the system crashes while	you are	writing	list,  list  could  be	filled
       with all	sorts of garbage.

LIST FORMAT
       list  may contain any number of lines; each line	may contain any	number
       of addresses or further :include: files.	 See newaliases(1) for details
       on the address format.  Any line	in file	beginning with # is ignored.

       COMPATIBILITY  WARNING: newinclude does not support file	or program de-
       liveries	in :include: files.  You can use the  secure  delivery	mecha-
       nisms described in dot-qmail(5) instead.

       COMPATIBILITY  WARNING:	Versions  of  sendmail before V8 did not allow
       comments	in :include: files.
