 newscan 1.45 - a NetNews network news article scanner

                             ANNOUNCEMENT
                   NEWSCAN: A NETWORK NEWS SCANNER
                             RELEASE 1.45

        Announcing release 1.45 of newscan.  newscan 1.45 has been posted
as a shell archive on comp.sources.misc.

        newscan scans NetNews newsgroups for articles containing matches to
keywords and regular expressions.  It helps overcome information overload
in the Internet newsgroups by selecting articles according to keyword and
pattern matches.  The user can then read the selected articles.

        newscan is a Perl program that will run on most Unix platforms
supporting Perl.  It does not need to be built or compiled. All it requires
is a working perl interpreter.  In some cases the user may need to edit the
first line of the newscan Perl script to point it to the user's local Perl
interpreter.

        Uses:

                *  Selecting job postings from misc.jobs.offered
        according to skills to be used in job.

                *  Selecting articles in a newsgroup discussing a subtopic.
        For example, in a newsgroup alt.cats, the user could search for
        articles containing the keyword Siamese to select articles
        dealing with only Siamese cats.

                *  Excluding articles containing a topic, such as flame
        war, that you are utterly sick of.  newscan can exclude articles
        based on a keyword.
