NNTPGET(1)		    General Commands Manual		    NNTPGET(1)

NAME
       nntpget - get Usenet articles from a remote NNTP	server

SYNOPSIS
       nntpget	[  -d dist ] [ -f file ] [ -n newsgroups ] [ -t	timestring ] [
       -o ] [ -u file ]	[ -v ] host

DESCRIPTION
       Nntpget connects	to the NNTP server at the specified host and retrieves
       articles	 from  it.  The	 Message-ID's of the desired articles are read
       from standard input. The	articles are sent to standard output.

OPTIONS
       -o     The ``-o'' option	may be used only if the	command	is executed on
	      the host where the innd(8) server	is running.  If	this option is
	      used, nntpget connects to	the specified remote host to  retrieve
	      articles.	 Any article not present in the	local history database
	      is then fetched from the remote site and offered	to  the	 local
	      server.

       -v     If  the  ``-v''  option  is used with the	``-o'' option then the
	      Message-ID of each article will be sent to standard output as it
	      is processed.

       -f     The  list	of article Message-ID's	is normally read from standard
	      input.  If the ``-f'' option is used, then a ``newnews'' command
	      is  used	to  retrieve  all articles newer then the modification
	      date of the specified file.

       -u     The ``-u'' option	is like	``-f'' except  that  if	 the  transfer
	      succeedes, the file will be updated with a statistics line, mod-
	      ifying its timestamp so that it can be  used  in	later  invoca-
	      tions.

       -t     If  the  ``-t'' option is	used, then the specified timestring is
	      used as the time and date	parameter to the ``newnews'' command.

       -n     If either	the ``-u'' or ``-f'' options are used, then the	``-n''
	      option  may  be used to specify a	newsgroup list.	The default is
	      ``*''.

       -d     The ``-d'' option	may be used to	specify	 a  distribution  list
	      when using the ``-u'' or ``-f'' options.	The default is no dis-
	      tribution	list.
