This manual page documents briefly the xpn command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU info(1) format; see below.

xpn is a graphical newsreader written in Python with the GTK+ toolkit.

With XPN you can read/write articles on the Usenet with a good MIME support. XPN can operate with all the most diffuse charset starting from US-ASCII to UTF-8. When you edit an article XPN automatically chooses the best charset, however is always possible to override this choice.

There also other useful features like scoring, filtered views, random tag-lines, external editor support, one-key navigation, ROT13, spoiler char, ...

-c directory, --custom_dir=directory
