NewsGrabber provides a Perl script to monitor several newsgroups for several regular expressions.
With NewsGrabber you can search newsgroups for subjects (regular expressions are allowed), monitor articles in newsgroups, or just fetch an article by message id.
It is configured by an XML file, and you can specify as many regular expressions per newsgroup as you like.
You can also add a number of news servers.
What's New in This Release:
· You can now generate simple statistics, print only the message id or the header instead of the whole found article, and write the articles to a file instead of stdout.
· There have been some minor bugfixes.
