Description of newslite 1.10

Edit By BS Editor: newslite is a UNIX/LINUX command line tool to download from newsgroup and decode multipart and monopart yENC and UU (Unix-to-Unix) encoded files (see screenshot).

There already exist a lot of programs like that. I built this new one to fulfill the following objectives:

1. resource efficiency in terms of CPU usage and memory so that it could be run on low-end computers
2. build "title list", in order to ease GROUP content analysis
3. robustness to news server connection loss

At this point in Time, newslite only supports yEnc or UU encoded binaries, the most widely used format for binary posting. Any attempt to download any other kind of encoded files will fail.

newslite main features:

1. threads XOVER command for faster group message header retrieval
2. threads file download for faster download
3. builds full list of groups hosted by the server
4. resumes download session in case of connection loss program interruption
5. makes use of configuration file to Simplify user command interface
6. builds "title" and "file" lists from article headers for quicker group content analysis
7. decodes yEnc and UU multi and mono-part encoded files
8. supports news server authentication
9. supports NZB file Processing (check the newzbin site for further information)
10. allows connection to news server through any TCP port (i.e. not only using NNTP 119)

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
