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

SYNOPSIS
       newsetup

DESCRIPTION
       The  newsetup  program creates a new .newsrc file containing all of the
       currently active newsgroups.  It tries to  put  them  in	 a  reasonable
       order,  i.e.  local  newsgroups	earlier,  but  you'll probably want to
       change the ordering anyway (if you use rn) in order to put  interesting
       newsgroups  first.  If you already have a .newsrc, it will be backed up
       with the name ".oldnewsrc".

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

SEE ALSO
       rn(1), newsrc(5)
