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 pat-
       tern" 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
       /usr/lib/news/subscriptions or a	reasonable facsimile
       ${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc

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