       nntidy - tidy your personal .newsrc file


       nntidy [ -aciNQrsuv ]  [ group ]...


       nntidy  will  clean  out  non-existing groups, adjust obviously wrong article numbers, and
       remove badly formed lines from your .newsrc file.

       It may optionally remove ignored groups, unsubscribed groups, and  groups  which  are  not
       part of your presentation sequence or the groups specified on the command line.

       You should run nntidy if your rc file has been corrupted for some reason.


       -a     Equivalent to -cisu.

       -c     Remove  unrecognized  lines.  This will also remove the `options' line used by some
              older news readers, such as readnews(1)

       -i     Remove entries for groups which are ignored in the database, e.g.   entries  marked
              with `X' in the GROUPS file.

       -r     Remove entries for unsubscribed groups.

       -s     Remove entries which are not included in the group presentation sequence defined in
              the init file.  If one or more groups are specified on the  command  line,  entries
              not matched by these groups (and their subgroups etc) will be removed.
              Notice  that  depending  on  how  you construct the presentation sequence, this may
              cause unsubscribed groups to be removed from .newsrc, but this  will  not  normally

       -u     Truncate  entries  for  unsubscribed  groups,  by  removing the article numbers and
              leaving only the news group name and the `!' mark.

       -v     Verbose operation.  Reports each change made to the .newsrc file.

       -N     No update mode.  The requested operations are performed,  but  the  result  is  not
              written  back  to disk.  This can be used with the -v option to see whether tidying
              is required.

       -Q     Quiet operation.  The version information is not printed.


       ~/.newsrc        The record of read articles
       ~/.newsrc.tidy   The original rc file before tidy
