NAME
       yencode - Usenet	file encoder

SYNOPSIS
       yencode	 [-d,	--debug]  [-e,	--extension=ext]  [-f,	--force]  [-l,
       --line=length] [-m, --multipart=size] [-o, --output=dir]	[-p,  --paths]
       [-q, --quiet] [--sfv=name] [--crc=name] [--help]	[--version] FILE ...

DESCRIPTION
       yencode	encodes	 the  files specified on the command line according to
       the yEnc	Usenet encoding	format.

OPTIONS
       -d, --debug
	      Write messages useful for	debugging to stderr while  program  is
	      operating.

       -e, --extension=ext
	      Use ext as the file extension for	encoded	files, instead of ync,
	      which is the default.

       -f, --force
	      If the output file already exists, overwrite the	existing  file
	      without prompting.

       -l, --line=length
	      Create encoded lines of length characters, instead of 128, which
	      is the default.

       -m, --multipart=size
	      Create multipart output, with each file containing size bytes of
	      data.   size  may	 be specified in bytes,	or in a	human-friendly
	      format such as 200k or 2M.  If -m	is specified without  a	 size,
	      each part	defaults to 620k.

       -o, --output=dir
	      Create output in dir instead of the current directory.

       -p, --paths
	      Save relative pathnames to files in the encoded data.  For exam-
	      ple, running yencode files/new/bigfile.mp3 will by default  save
	      the filename as bigfile.mp3.  If the -p option is	specified, the
	      filename will be saved as	files/new/bigfile.mp3.

       -q, --quiet
	      Try to avoid writing output while	running.  The only output that
	      will occur is error messages.

       --sfv=name
	      Create a yencoded	SFV file containing the	checksum of each input
	      file.  If	name is	specified, then	that name will be  used	 as  a
	      prefix for the SFV file.

       --crc=name
	      Create a yencoded	CRC file containing the	checksum of each input
	      file.  If	name is	specified, then	that name will be  used	 as  a
	      prefix for the CRC file.	Note that this CRC file	may or may not
	      comply with the "standard" for what a .crc file is  supposed  to
	      contain.

       --help Display program help and exit.

       --version
	      Output version number and	exit.
