Newspost is a Usenet binary autoposter for UNIX systems.
Newspost is a usenet binary autoposter for Unix. It is meant to be an all-in-one posting solution. Using newspost, it is a one command job to encode and post as many files as you like to your favorite newsgroup.
In addition to posting files, Newspost will automatically create and post .sfv checksum files. Newspost 2.0 can create .par parity volumes, and supports both yencoding and uuencoding.
Support for .sfv files comes from cksfv. The uuencoding code is based on some of the GNU Project's code. The code for creating parity volumes comes from parchive v1.1. Good thing everything is licensed under the GPL!
What's New in This Release:
· The extra header option (-X) works again
· Subject line creation is fixed when ALLOW_NO_SUBJECT is defined
· The text prefix is no longer counted in the "UUencoding xx bytes" line
· Updated the contact e-mail address
