newsrequeue - tool to rewrite batchfiles.


   newsrequeue  [  -a  active  ]  [  -h  history ] [ -d days ] [ -l ] [ -n
   newsfeeds ] [ input ]


   Newsrequeue can be used to rewrite batchfiles after a system crash.  It
   operates  in  two  modes.  In the first mode, it first reads the active
   (5) and newsfeeds(5) files to determine where the different  newsgroups
   are  to  be distributed.  It then opens the history database.  Once the
   files are opened, newsrequeue reads from the specified input  file,  or
   standard input if no file is specified.  Each line should have a single
   Message-ID, surrounded in angle brackets; any other text on the line is
   ignored.   For  example, the history file (or trailing subset of it) is
   acceptable input to the program operating in this mode.

   Newsrequeue uses the first two fields  of  the  newsfeed  entry  ---  the
   sitename  and  the excludes field, and the patterns and distribs field.
   It ignores all flags in the third field except for the ``N'' field, and
   also ignores the fourth field altogether.

   The  output  of  newsrequeue consists of one line for each article that
   should be forwarded.  Each  such  line  contains  the  Message-ID,  the
   filename,  and  the list of sites that should receive the article.  The
   output is suitable for piping into filechan(8).

   The second mode is used if the ``-l'' flag is given.  In this mode,  it
   reads  from  the  specified input file, or standard input if no file is
   specified.  Each line should look like an innd log  entry.   It  parses
   entries  for  accepted articles, looks up the Message-ID in the history
   database to get the filename, and then scans the list of sites.


   -a     To specify alternate locations for  the  active  file,  use  the
          ``-a'' flag.

   -n     Use  the  ``-n''  flag  to specify an alternate location for the
          newsfeeds(8) file.

   -h     Use the ``-h'' flag to specify  a  different  location  for  the
          history database,

   -d     If  the  ``-d''  flag  is  used,  then  only  articles that were
          received within the specified number of days will be processed.

   -l     Read innd type  log  entries  instead  of  a  history-file  like
