NAME

       nntpsend.ctl - list of sites to feed via nntpsend

DESCRIPTION

       The  file /etc/news/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list of sites to
       be fed by nntpsend(8).

       Comments begin with a number sign (‘‘#’’) and continue through the  end
       of  the  line.   Blank lines and comments are ignored.  All other lines
       should consist of four fields separated by a colon.

       The  first  field  is  the  name  of  the  site  as  specified  in  the
       newsfeeds(5) file.

       The  second  field  should  be the hostname or IP address of the remote
       site.

       The third field, if non-empty, specifies the  default  tail  truncation
       size  of  site’s  batchfile.   If this field is empty, no truncation is
       performed.  If this field is of the form ‘‘maxsize-truncsize’’ then  it
       is passed to shrinkfile as ‘‘-m maxsize -s truncsize’’, otherwise is of
       the form ‘‘truncsize’’ then it is passed as ‘‘-s truncsize’’.

       The fourth field specifies some default  flags  passed  to  innxmit(8).
       The  flag  ‘‘-a’’  is always given to innxmit and need not appear hear.
       If no ‘‘-t timeout’’ flag is given in this field and  on  the  nntpsend
       command line, ‘‘-t 180’’ will be given to innxmit.
