NEWSGROUPS(1)		    General Commands Manual		 NEWSGROUPS(1)

NAME
       newsgroups - a program to list unsubscribed newsgroups.

SYNOPSIS
       newsgroups pattern flag

DESCRIPTION
       The  newsgroups program compares	your .newsrc file with the file	of ac-
       tive newsgroups,	and prints a list of unsubscribed newsgroups  matching
       pattern.	 If the	second argument	"flag" is present, only	newsgroups not
       found in	your .newsrc are listed, and the display is not	paged.	If the
       second  argument	 is  missing,  the display is paged, and an additional
       list of unsubscribed newsgroups occurring in your .newsrc is printed.

ENVIRONMENT
       DOTDIR  Where to	find 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/active or a reasonable facsimile
       ${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc

SEE ALSO
       rn(1), newsrc(5)

DIAGNOSTICS
BUGS
       The flag	argument is a kludge.
