NAME
       nntidy -	tidy your personal .newsrc file

SYNOPSIS
       nntidy [	-aciNQrsuv ]  [	group ]...

DESCRIPTION
       nntidy will clean out non-existing groups, adjust obviously wrong arti-
       cle numbers, and	remove badly formed lines from your .newsrc file.

       It may optionally  remove  ignored  groups,  unsubscribed  groups,  and
       groups  which  are not part of your presentation	sequence or the	groups
       specified on the	command	line.

       You should run nntidy if	your rc	file has been corrupted	for some  rea-
       son.

OPTIONS
       -a     Equivalent to -cisu.

       -c     Remove  unrecognized lines.  This	will also remove the `options'
	      line used	by some	older news readers, such as readnews(1)

       -i     Remove entries for groups	which are  ignored  in	the  database,
	      e.g.  entries marked with	`X' in the GROUPS file.

       -r     Remove entries for unsubscribed groups.

       -s     Remove  entries which are	not included in	the group presentation
	      sequence defined in the init file.  If one or  more  groups  are
	      specified	 on  the  command  line,  entries not matched by these
	      groups (and their	subgroups etc) will be removed.
	      Notice that depending on how you construct the presentation  se-
	      quence,  this  may  cause	unsubscribed groups to be removed from
	      .newsrc, but this	will not normally happen.

       -u     Truncate entries for unsubscribed	groups,	by removing the	 arti-
	      cle  numbers  and	 leaving  only the news	group name and the `!'
	      mark.

       -v     Verbose operation.  Reports each	change	made  to  the  .newsrc
	      file.

       -N     No update	mode.  The requested operations	are performed, but the
	      result is	not written back to disk.  This	can be used  with  the
	      -v option	to see whether tidying is required.

       -Q     Quiet operation.	The version information	is not printed.

FILES
       ~/.newsrc	The record of read articles
       ~/.newsrc.tidy	The original rc	file before tidy
