explode - expand a relaynews master batch file into all the ordinary
batch files implied
explode [ file ... ]
Explode reads a master batch file produced by relaynews(8CN) and writes
all the plain batch files described therein. Explode should be run in
/var/spool/news, since the input file will almost certainly contain
path names relative to /var/spool/news.
The format of the input file(s) is
# optional comments
<firstname.lastname@example.org> news/admin/12435 2097
where 2097 is the article size in bytes, and where there is one
<message-id> line per article and an F, f, n or I line per site getting
news(5), newsbatch(8CN), relaynews(8CN)
