NAME
       snnewgroup - create a new sn newsgroup

SYNOPSIS
       snnewgroup newsgroup [server] [port]

DESCRIPTION
       snnewgroup  creates  newsgroup  assigning it an upstream	NNTP server of
       server:port.  If	port is	not specified, defaults	to 119.	 If server  is
       also  not specified, newsgroup is created as a local group which	is fed
       only by articles	POSTed to it.

       You will	need to	be root	or own /var/spool/news in  order  to  add  new
       groups.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       SNROOT If  this	is set and is not empty, the value is used in place of
	      /var/spool/news, the default news	spool directory.

FILES CREATED

	      Directory	where articles will be stored.

	      Empty file for the newsgroup creation time.

       /var/spool/news/newsgroup/.serial
	      Where snget gets its idea	of the new starting serial number  for
	      newsgroup	on server server:port.	The value is initialized to 0.

       /var/spool/news/newsgroup/.outgoing
	      If server	is specified, is a symlink to  /var/spool/news/.outgo-
	      ing/server:port, which is	a directory, created if	 it  does  not
	      already	exist.	  If   server	is   not  specified,  no  file
	      /var/spool/news/newsgroup/.outgoing will be created.   See  also
