NAME

       newsgroups - a program to list unsubscribed newsgroups.

SYNOPSIS

       newsgroups pattern flag

DESCRIPTION

       The  newsgroups program compares your .newsrc file with the file of active newsgroups, and
       prints a list of unsubscribed newsgroups matching pattern.  If the second argument  "flag"
       is  present,  only newsgroups not found in your .newsrc are listed, and the display is not
       paged.  If the second argument is missing, the display is paged, and an additional list of
       unsubscribed newsgroups occurring in your .newsrc is printed.

ENVIRONMENT

       DOTDIR  Where to find your .newsrc, if not in your home directory.

               Default: $HOME

       HOME    Your home directory.

               Default: $LOGDIR

       LOGDIR  Your home directory if HOME is undefined.

FILES

       /usr/lib/news/active or a reasonable facsimile
       ${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc

DIAGNOSTICS

BUGS

       The flag argument is a kludge.
