       cvtbatch - convert Usenet batch file to INN format

       cvtbatch [ -w items ]

       Cvtbatch reads standard input as a series of lines, converts each line,
       and writes it to standard output.  It is used to convert simple	batch‐
       files that contain just the article name to INN batchfiles that contain
       additional information about each article.

       Each line is taken as the pathname to a Usenet article.	If it  is  not
       an  absolute  pathname,	it  is	taken relative to the spool directory,
       /var/spool/news/spool.  (Only the first word of each  line  is  parsed;
       anything following whitespace is ignored.)

       The  ``-w'' flag specifies how each output line should be written.  The
       items for this flag should be chosen from the ``W'' flag items as spec‐
       ified in newsfeeds(5).  They may be chosen from the following set:
		   b	Size of article in bytes
		   f	full pathname of article
		   m	article message-id
		   n	relative pathname of article

       If  the	input  file  consists  of  a  series of Message-ID's, then use
       grephistory(1) with the ``-s'' flag piped into cvtbatch.

       Written by Rich $alz <> for  InterNetNews.   This  is
       revision 1.2, dated 1992/09/14.

       grephistory(1) newsfeeds(5).
