lpost(1) post articles to local server using rnews.


lpost [ -v ]


-v verbose, show each article as it is uploaded.


Use the batch function of suck and avoid lpost, this is not the most efficient way of doing things. It is kept solely as a link to the past, since some people still use it. It is not compiled nor installed by default. To build and install lpost, from the source directory, run:


 make install_lpost


lpost (local post) reads stdin and pipes the articles to rnews, typically found in /usr/lib/news. If it is located elsewhere, change #define RNEWS in suck_config.h. A typical way to use lpost is:

zcat output.gz | lpost

This could take a while, so be patient.
