cnews.maintMaintenance Tools and Tasks
Despite the complexity of C News, a news administrator's life can be fairly easy, because C News provides you with a wide variety of maintenance tools. Some of these are intended to be run regularly from cron, like newsdaily. Using these scripts reduces daily care and feeding requirements of your C News installation greatly.
Unless stated otherwise, these commands are located in /usr/lib/news/bin/maint. Note that you must become user news before invoking these commands. Running them as super-user may render these files inaccessible to C News.
