getlist - get a list from an NNTP server


getlist [ -h host ] [ list [ pattern [ types ] ] ]


The getlist program obtains a list from an NNTP server and sends it to standard output.

The list may be one of active, active.times, distributions, or newsgroups. These values
request the active(5), active.times, /etc/news/distributions, or /var/lib/news/newsgroups
files, respectively.


-h If the ``-h'' flag is used, then the program connects to the server on the
specified host. The default is to connect to the server specified in the
inn.conf(5) file.

If the list parameter is active, then the pattern and types parameters may be used to
limit the output. When pattern is used, only active lines with groups that match
according to wildmat(3) are printed. When types is also given, only active lines that
have a fourth field starting with a character found in types are printed.

For example, the following command will obtain the one-line descriptions of all newsgroups
found on UUNET:
getlist -h news.uu.net newsgroups

The following line lists all groups where local postings are permitted, are moderated or
getlist active '*' ym=

Note that the listing files other than the active file is a common extension to the NNTP
protocol and may not be available on all servers.
