NAME

checknews - check for unread news

SYNOPSIS

checknews

DESCRIPTION

Checknews informs the user whether he has unread news. It is suitable for running from a .profile (or .login if you use a certain non-standard shell) file.

Checknews normally runs readnews(1) with the -c option. As a heuristic concession to practicality, if the user has a .rnlast file in his $HOME directory, checknews runs rn -c -s3 instead.

FILES

$HOME/.newsrc
/var/lib/news/active

SEE ALSO

readnews(1CN), rn(1)
