NEWSMAIL(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   NEWSMAIL(8)

NAME
       recenews, recpnews - receive mailed news
       bdecode - decode	encoded	mailed news

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/cnews/input/recenews
       /usr/local/libexec/cnews/input/recpnews
       /usr/local/libexec/cnews/input/bdecode [	file ]

DESCRIPTION
       Sometimes  it is	necessary to transmit news via mail, to	deal with net-
       work connections	that have no notion of arbitrary file transfer or non-
       mail traffic.  These programs handle reception of such traffic.

       Recenews	 receives encoded news,	decodes	it, and	feeds it to rnews (see
       rnews(8CN)).  Recpnews does likewise for	mail protected with `N'.  Nor-
       mally one should	arrange	that mail arriving at the mailbox ``enews'' is
       sent to recenews	and likewise for ``rnews'' (the	 name  is  historical,
       for compatibility again)	and recpnews.

       Bdecode passes standard input, or the file if there is one, to standard
       output,	decoding  the  bencode	encoding  and  stripping  off	debris
       prepended and appended by mailers.

HISTORY
       Written	at  U of Toronto by Henry Spencer, with	contributions by Geoff
       Collyer.	 Bdecode written at University of Waterloo by Reg Quinton  and
       Ken Lalonde.
