snscan,v0.3.8(8)	    System Manager's Manual	      snscan,v0.3.8(8)

NAME
       snscan -	display	information on articles	in the spool
       sncat - display articles	in the spool
       sncancel	- cancel articles in the spool

SYNOPSIS
       snscan [options]	articlespec...
       sncat [options] articlespec...
       sncancel	[options] articlespec...
       options:	[-n] [-s since]	[-o outputfile]

DESCRIPTION
       snscan displays	information  on	all articles specified by articlespec,
	      in the form
	      newsgroup	serial id
	      on a line, one line per article matched.	This output  is	 suit-
	      able for feeding to snprimedb.

       sncat  displays the articles specified by articlespec.

       sncancel
	      marks articles specified by articlespec as canceled, so they be-
	      come unavailable to sn programs.

ARGUMENTS
       articlespec defines a broad pattern for articles.  It takes  two	 mutu-
       ally exclusive forms.

       Specify by newsgroup and	serial number
	      Here articlespec is
	      newsgroup[:range[,range]...]
	      where each range is
	      serial[-[toserial]]
	      (where  toserial	is greater than	serial).  If toserial is omit-
	      ted, then	all articles after serial are matched.	If both	serial
	      and  toserial  are  empty, then only the first and last articles
	      are matched.

       Specify by articles message ID
	      Here articlespec is -i id...
	      where each id is a message ID, angle brackets optional.

OPTIONS
       -n     This option weeds	out articles that are aliases.	If an  article
	      is  crossposted, there will be an	original copy, the others will
	      be aliases to it.	 This option prevents information  being  dis-
	      played if	it is not from the original copy.

       -ssince
	      This  option weeds out articles that were	obtained before	since.
	      since is in the format year/month/day[:hour:minute]  where  each
	      is  a number.  year may be 2 or 4	digits,	and / and : can	be any
	      non-digit	character.

       -ooutputfile
	      Write output to outputfile instead of descriptor	1.   Sometimes
	      you just don't feel like using the shell.

EXAMPLES
       sncancel	linux.lemmings:12
	      Cancel article 12	from linux.lemmings.

       snscan linux.lemmings:4,12-
	      Display  information  on	article	4, and also articles 12	to the
	      most recent article, from	linux.lemmings.

       sncat -n	-s 1998/4/1 linux.lemmings
	      Display all articles that	are not	aliases, and  which  were  en-
	      tered after April	1 1998,	from linux.lemmings.

       snscan -i '123@myhost'
	      Display  information on the article whose	ID is <123@myhost>, in
	      whichever	newsgroup it is	found.

FILES
       Each articlespec	or id on the command line refers to  articles  in  the
       news spool located in /var/spool/news.

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.

EXIT CODES
       snscan exits 0 on success, 1 on usage error, 2 on system	error,	and  3
       on  other  errors.   It is not an error to specify an article that does
       not exist, or which does	not meet the since criterion.
