NEWSETUP(1)                                           NEWSETUP(1)

NAME
       newsetup - a program to set up a .newsrc file

SYNOPSIS
       newsetup

DESCRIPTION
       The newsetup program creates a new .newsrc file containing
       an list of recommended newsgroups for the first time user.
       If  your  news admin has specified such a list (usually in
       the file NEWSLIB/subscriptions) trn will  use  that  as  a
       default  for  your  .newsrc.   Otherwise you get a ridicu-
       lously small list that you'll want to add to using the  "a
       pattern"  command  in  trn  (such  as  "a linux").  If you
       already have a .newsrc, it will be backed up with the name
       ".newsrc-old".

ENVIRONMENT
       DOTDIR  Where  to  put  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/subscriptions or a reasonable facsimile
       ${DOTDIR-{$HOME-$LOGDIR}}/.newsrc
