Gunner News Reader project is a console-based news reader.

Gunner is a console-based Usenet news reader which is easy to configure. It supports multiple users, multiple servers, and color consoles. It supports most of the NNTP protocol.

WHAT IS IT?
Gunner is a free Usenet news reader. It was built on a code base provided by Howard Benson's SimpleNews 0.20 with a user interface design patterned after the great Mutt mail client. It supports color terminals, the NNTP protocol, multiple news feeds and multiple users. Gunner is supported on most contemporary UNIX platforms. The Gunner philosophy is similar to Mutt's: All news readers suck, we're just hoping to make this one suck less.

WHERE IS IT?
Currently there is only one gunner repository. The latest version of gunner may be obtained via anonymous ftp: North America East Coast. This is a source code distribution. There are currently no binaries available. See Installation below for compilation and installation instructions.

INSTALLATION
Gunner was built with the GNU autotools. If you are familiar with GNU software, then you should be comfortable installing gunner. In a nutshell, built it like this:

./configure --prefix=/some/directory
make
make install
edit ~/.gunnerrc

What's New in This Release:

Added bounds checking and code stabilization.
Added support for color terminals.
Remade the gunnerrc file.
