NAME
       ~/.ypostrc - ypost configuration	file

DESCRIPTION
       This file, located in the user's	home directory and called .ypostrc, is
       read by the ypost(1) program at startup.	 The options in	this file  may
       be overwritten by command line options.

       It might	look like this:

	      ## ~/.ypostrc
	      ## ypost configuration file

	      ## My login information
	      user = user1234
	      pass = IloveUnix
	      server = news.example.com

       Each  line in the file may contain a configuration option (described in
       the OPTIONS section of this man page) in	the form of  an	 option	 name,
       follwed	by  an equal sign (`=')	followed by the	value for that option.
       Option lines with blank values are ignored, as well as all text follow-
       ing a hash mark (`#'), and empty	lines.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available to control the behavior of ypost at
       run-time.  Options that take a BOOL value are enabled with any of  `y',
       `yes', `on', or `1' and disabled	with any other value.

       author=author
	      When  posting  messages,	use author in the Usenet From: header.
	      See ypost(1) for permissible syntax.

       debug=BOOL
	      Enable debug output?

       comment=comment
	      When posting messages, suffix subject lines  with	 comment,  en-
	      closed in	square brackets.

       force=BOOL
	      When posting messages, skip confirmation of posting summary?

       group=newsgroup
	      Post messages to the specified newsgroup.

       line=length
	      Use length as the	line length for	encoded	data.

       messageid=BOOL
	      Include the Message-ID: header line when posting?

       multipart=lines
	      Split  large  files after	the number of lines specified by lines
	      instead of 5000, which is	the default.

       nosort=BOOL
	      Inhibit sorting of input files before posting messages?

       paths=BOOL
	      Store paths in archives as they were specified  on  the  command
	      line?  If	on, do not strip paths.

       pass=password
	      Provide password for authentication to the news server when con-
	      necting.

       quiet=BOOL
	      Operate as quietly as possible?

       retry=retries
	      Specify the number of retries that should	be attempted if	a post
	      fails.

       subject=subject
	      When  posting  messages,	prefix subject lines with subject, en-
	      closed in	square brackets.

       server=address
	      Post all messages	through	the news server	specified by address.

       stdout=BOOL
	      Output to	the  standard  output,	instead	 of  posting  messages
	      through a	server?

       timeout=seconds
	      Socket  operations  should  time out after this many seconds.  A
	      value of `0' will	disable	the timeout.

       sortfirst=extensions
	      extensions should	be a comma-separated list of  extensions  that
	      will  come  first	 when sorting.	The built-in default value for
	      this field is  `nfo,crc,sfv,par,rar,zip,arj,ace'.	  This	causes
	      files  like  .nfo	 and .sfv files	to be posted first, as well as
	      causing .rar files to be posted before .r00 files, instead of at
	      the  end,	which is annoying.  The	extensions listed are not case
	      sensitive.

       user=username
	      Provide username for authentication to the news server when con-
	      necting.

       sfv=BOOL
	      Post an .sfv file	for the	input files?

       crc=BOOL
	      Post a .crc file for the input files?
