kitpost - posts distribution kits


kitpost [ -hrV ] [ -H file ] [ -D desc ] [ -m dest1,dest2 ] [ kits ] [ newsgroups ]


Kitpost posts distribution kits made by makedist to some (source) newsgroups specified on
the command line. If you do not specify any kit list, then all the kits are sent.
Otherwise, only the specified kits will be (re)sent.

A kit list may include ranges, 1-10 specifying kits 1 through 10, and 5- meaning kits 5 up
to the last one. You may also specify kit numbers by separating them with commas or
spaces, and even mix with ranges, such as: 1 3 5-7 9.

Kitpost ensures correct References: lines are inserted in your postings so that all parts
but the first point to the root article. Threaded newsreaders and end-users traditionally
appreciate that.


The following options are recognized by kitpost:

-h Print help message and exit.

-m dest1,destn
Sends kits by e-mail to the specified recipients. This option may be used in
conjunction with newsgroup posting. It is mainly intended for sites where direct
posting to a moderated newsgroup is not allowed by inews. You may thus send your
kits to the newsgroup moderator in a form that will ease the whole posting

-r Signals a repost.

-D description
Specify a description string that will be added to the subject line. Usually a
brief sentence (less than, say, 40 characters).

-H file Specify a file to be used as header introduction in the first part of your
posting. Usually the root README file.

-V Print version number and exit.
