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	match‐
       ing 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

BUGS
       The flag argument is a kludge.
