  inews 
 
    A  {Unix}  program  for  posting  {Usenet} 
  news  articles,  written  by  Rich  $alz    for 
  {InterNetNews}.  inews  reads  an  article  (perhaps  with  headers) 
  from  a  file  or  {standard},  adds  some  {header}s  and  possibly  a 
  {signature},  and  if  the  article  passes  some  consistency 
  checks  (too  much  quoting,  non-existent  {newsgroup})  then  inews 
  sends  the  article  to  the  local  news  {server}  for  distribution. 
 
  If  an  unapproved  posting  is  made  to  a  {moderated}  newsgroup, 
  inews  will  try  to  send  the  article  to  the  moderator  (specified 
  in  a  configuration  file)  by  {electronic  mail}.
