       sendinpaths - Send Usenet Path: statistics via e-mail

       sendinpaths [-cdhn] [-k keep-days] [-r report-days] [address [address

       sendinpaths checks pathlog/path for ninpaths dump files,	finds dump
       files generated in the past report-days days, makes sure	they are valid
       by running ninpaths on each one and making sure the exit	status is
       zero, and passes	them to	ninpaths to generate a cumulative report.  By
       default,	that report is mailed to the e-mail addresses configured at
       the beginning of	this script (by	default, only one address is
       configured: <>) in order to supply the TOP1000
       project with useful statistics.	See <>
       for more	information.

       When finished, sendinpaths deletes all dump files in pathlog/path that
       are older than keep-days	days.

       For more	information on how to set up ninpaths, see ninpaths(8).

       -c  When	this flag is used, the report is also e-mailed,	besides	the
	   default submission addresses	or those given as command-line
	   arguments, to the newsmaster's address set at configure time.

       -d  Enables debug messages.

       -h  Gives usage information.

       -k keep-days
	   After having	processed dump files, sendinpaths removes those	that
	   are older than keep-days days.  The default is 0, that is to	say to
	   remove all dump files.

	   Setting keep-days to	another	value can be useful for	debugging
	   purpose because it permits to keep a	few dump files.

       -n  Don't e-mail	the report; instead, just print	it to standard output.
	   Don't delete	old dump files.

       -r report-days
	   Process dump	files generated	during the last	report-days days.  The
	   default is 32, that is to say to process all	the dump files that
	   have	been generated during the last 32 days (if, of course, they
	   have	not been deleted yet by	a previous run of sendinpaths
	   according to	the value set by the -k	flag).

       address ...
	   E-mail the report to	the mentioned address or addresses, instead of
	   the default one.  Several addresses can be used, separated by
	   whitespace (sending the e-mail to your own e-mail address can be
	   useful for debugging	purpose, to check that everything works	fine).
	   For instance, for two addresses:
