NNGREP(1)		    General Commands Manual		     NNGREP(1)

NAME
       nngrep -	grep for news group names (nn)

SYNOPSIS
       nngrep [	-ainprsu ] [ -l	] [ pattern ]

DESCRIPTION
       nngrep can print	various	selections of the available news groups.

       Without	options,  nngrep will list all currently subscribed newsgroups
       whose name matches any of the specified patterns.   If  no  pattern  is
       specified, all subscribed groups	will be	listed.

       The  selection  of  news	groups against which the patterns are matches,
       and subsequently	printed	by nngrep can be limited or expanded using the
       following command line options and arguments:

       -a     Use  both	 subscribed and	unsubscribed groups.  Overrides	the -u
	      option.

       -i     Use only ignored groups, i.e. which are not in the  presentation
	      sequence.

       -n     Use only new groups.  Notice that	nn considers a group to	be new
	      until you	have read at least one article in the  group,  or  you
	      have unsubscribed	to the group.  This means that even reasonable
	      active news groups may remain "new" for quite some  time	if  it
	      only  contains  articles	which are cross-posted to other	groups
	      which occur earlier in your presentation sequence.

       -p     Use only groups with unread (pending) articles.

       -r     Use only read groups, i.e. without unread	articles.

       -s     Use only groups which are	in the presentation sequence.

       -u     Use only unsubscribed groups.

       These options can be combined if	 they  don't  logically	 exclude  each
       other.

       For  example,  to get the names of all "source" groups, you can use the
       command
	    nngrep source

       You can use this	to read	a specific subset of news groups with nn;  for
       example
	    nn `nngrep -sp source`

LONG LISTING
       A  long	listing	 of  the  matched  groups can be requested with	the -l
       option.	It will	include	the following information:

       SUBSCR	  Specifies whether the	group is subscribed or not (yes/no).
       NEW	  Specifies whether the	group is new or	not (yes/no).
       UNREAD	  Shows	the number of unread articles in the group (if any).
       SEQUENCE	  Shows	the group's index in the presentation sequence.
       GROUP	  The name of the group.

FILES
       ~/.newsrc    The	record of read articles
       ~/.nn/init   The	presentation sequence
