crashlist(1) Compile a CrashMail nodelist


crashlist dir


Builds an index for the nodelists in the specified directory (or in the current directory if no directory is specified). To find out what nodelists to read, CrashList uses a file called cmnodelist.prefs in the nodelist directory. The format of this file is as follows:

<nodelist name> [<default zone>]

As the name of the nodelist, you can either specify the full name of the nodelist or just the base name of the nodelist (without .xxx at the end). If you just specify the base name, CrashList will use the latest nodelist with that name (selected by date, not the extension). A default zone can be used for regional nodelists without a Zone line. All lines beginning with a semicolon are treated as comments. Pointlists should be in BinkleyTerm format and should be specified after the real nodelists.


Example cmnodelist.prefs:
 ; Configuration for CrashList
 ; Format: <nodelist> [<default zone>]
