       inews - post an article to the local news server

       inews  [	 -h  ]	[ -x Path:-contents ] [	-f From:-contents ] [ -n News-
       groups:-contents	] [ -t Subject:-contents ] [ -w	 Followup-To:-contents
       ]  [  -e	 Expires:-contents  ]  [  -r  Reply-To:-contents ] [ -F	Refer-
       ences:-contents ] [ -c Control:-contents	] [ -d	Distribution:-contents
       ] [ -a Approved:-contents ] [ -o	Organization:-contents ] [ file
	... ]

       Inews  reads an article from either each	of the specified files in turn
       or standard input, adds the required and	 specified  header  lines  and
       passed it to rnews(8) with the -q option.

       If  the	-h  option  is given the input is assumed to be	in the form of
       header, blank line then body.  If not then it is	all treated as the ar-
       ticle  body.  If	any header line	is specifed as a command line argument
       then the	command	line contents override that read from the  input.   If
       any  of the header lines	that are required by RFC 1036 are then missing
       they are	added with default content.

       If the content From header line is overridden either from standard  in-
       put  with  the  -h option or with the -f	option and the posting user is
       not the news user then a	Sender header line is added.

       -h     Read header lines	from the input as well as the article body.

       The following options are used to add header lines:

       -x     Path

       -f     From

       -n     Newsgroups

       -t     Subject

       -w     Followup-To

       -e     Expires

       -r     Reply-To

       -F     References

       -c     Control

       -d     Distribution

       -a     Approved

       -o     Organization

       rnews(8), qnews(8), nntpd(8)
