NAME
       nntpsend.ctl - List of sites to feed via	nntpsend

DESCRIPTION
       The file	pathetc/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list	of sites to be
       fed by nntpsend.	 Comments begin	with a number sign ("#") and continue
       through the end of the line.  Blank lines and comments are ignored.
       All other lines should consist of four fields separated by a colon.

       The first field is the name of the site as specified in the newsfeeds
       file.

       The second field	should be the hostname or IP address of	the remote
       site.

       The third field,	if non-empty, specifies	the default head truncation
       size of the batch file.	If this	field is empty,	no truncation is
       performed.  This	field may be of	the form "maxsize-truncsize", in which
       case it is passed to shrinkfile as "-m maxsize -s truncsize"; otherwise
       it is of	the form "truncsize", in which case it is passed as "-s
       truncsize".

       The fourth field	specifies some default flags passed to innxmit.	 Note
       that the	flag -a	is always given	to innxmit and need not	appear here.
       If no -t	flag is	given in this field or on the nntpsend command line,
       "-t 180"	will be	given to innxmit.

       See nntpsend(8) for an example of nntpsend.ctl config file.
