       nntpsend.ctl - list of sites to feed via nntpsend

       The  file  /var/spool/news/data/nntpsend.ctl specifies the default list
       of sites to be fed by nntpsend(8).

       Comments begin with a number sign (``#'') and continue through the  end
       of  the	line.	Blank lines and comments are ignored.  All other lines
       should consist of four fields separated by a colon.

       The first field is the name of the  site	 as  specified	in  the	 news‐
       feeds(5) file.

       The  second  field  should  be the hostname or IP address of the remote

       The third field, if non-empty, specifies the  default  tail  truncation
       size  of	 site's batchfile.  This is passed to shrinkfile as the ``-s''
       flag.  If this field is empty, no truncation is performed.

       The fourth field specifies some default	flags  passed  to  innxmit(8).
       The  flag  ``-a''  is always given to innxmit and need not appear hear.
       If no ``-t timeout'' flag is given in this field and  on	 the  nntpsend
       command line, ``-t 180'' will be given to innxmit.
