NAME

       newsflag - change active-file flag for newsgroup

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/lib/news/maint/newsflag newsgroup newval

DESCRIPTION

       Newsflag  sets the fourth field of newsgroup’s entry in the active file
       (see  newsdb(5))  to  newval,  doing  proper  locking  to  ensure  safe
       modification  of the file.  For example, to change newsgroup x.y.z from
       unmoderated to moderated:

              newsflag x.y.z m

       The effect is purely local; no control message (to propagate the change
       to other machines) is sent.
