trimhist	- trims UULIB:HISTORY.FIL
rnews		- rnews with history
batchnews	- batchnews that locks UULIB:HISTORY.FIL
postnews	- postnews with ALIASING
histtxt	- creates an ASCII history file using the binary HISTORY.FIL

Here is my package of modified executables from AmigaUUCP1.17 beta 4.

rnews - this program has been modified to create a binary history file of all
message IDs of News articles that it processes (including locally posted ones).
The program reads the entire HISTORY.FIL into memory, and when done only appends
the new message IDs.  When it Posting mode (-p) it just straight appends the new
message ID.  All the IDs have a stamp of the current date (julian number). 

trimhist - has one arguement.  The number of days to keep.  It will remove the
records from the front of the HISTORY.FIL that are older than the argument
number of days. 

batchnews - checks to see if the file lock on HISTORY.FIL is present, this is
to prevent batchnews from running the same time rnews is running.  The problem
is that rnews will continue to append to UUSPOOL:batch/<system> and batchnews
is batching up articles.  This usually resulted in duplicate articles being
sent to downstream sites. 

Postnews - This program has been modified to allow for an alias file
"uulib:news.aliases".

===========================================================================

This exists because DLG uses assigns to access the newsgroups, which it expects
to be the same the newsgroup name.  It fails if the newsgroup is not unique
within the first 31 characters.  DLG truncates the name to 31 characters (which
is an AmigaDOS limitation) when it applies the assign.  This causes problems
with importing newsgroups.  This aliasing is my kluge around the problem.

===========================================================================

All applications here are use at your own risk.  They worked for me when I
had a need for them, and was running V1.17 beta 1 code.  But, the changes
were just quickly applied to the beta 4 code for this release.
