NNTP Tools

This is a small collection of Usenet-related programs.


These programs run on Linux and are written in C and C++. They requires Lynx, Curl, Expat and Libgcrypt. bzr2news requires Bazaar to be installed.

spoolstats requires cairomm, currently the configure script will fail without this but in future it might be possible to build just the non-graphical tools.
