NAME
       updatenews  -  post articles from outgoing spool	directory and prefetch
       newsgroups

SYNOPSIS
       updatenews [ -h ] [ -v ]	[ -a ] [ -g ] [	-o ] [ -l ] [ -w # ]

DESCRIPTION
       Updatenews  submits  all	those articles that have  been	stored	within
       NewsCache's  outgoing-queue.  If	necessary the ActiveDB will be updated
       (see the	-a option to force the update).	Afterwards  retrieves all  the
       articles	 from  the  newsgroups listed in the PrefetchFile (This	can be
       configured in newscache.conf).

OPTIONS
       These programs follow the usual GNU command line	syntax,	with long  op-
       tions starting with two dashes (`-').  A	summary	of options is included
       below.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -v, --version
	      Show version of program.

       -a, --active
	      Force the	prefetch the active data base. Updatenews first	inval-
	      idate the	ActiveDB to force the update.

       -g, --group
	      Prefetch whole newsgroups.

       -o, --over
	      Only prefetch the	overview database.

       -l, --lock-group
	      Always   lock  the newsgroup while prefetching it. This improves
	      the performance of update- news slightly,	but  nobody  else  can
	      read this	newsgroup while	prefetching.

       -w, --workers #
	      Use  #  workers for prefetching. Each worker is assigned its own
	      newsgroup	to prefetch.
