NewsLib is a library of perl modules for managing Network News services. It's meant to be used for code-reuse and sharing when writing news-based applications.

It currently includes:

News::Article::Response - Create responses to News::Article articles
News::Article::Ref - Reference functions for news articles
News::Article::Clean - Subroutines to clean News::Article headers
News::Article::Cancel - Generate accurate cancel messages
News::NNTPAuth - Deprecated for Net::NNTP::Auth
Net::NNTP::Auth - A standard NNTP authentication method
Net::NNTP::Proxy - A news server in perl
Net::NNTP::Client - Simulate an entire NNTP client
Net::NNTP::Functions - Code to implement NNTP-standard functions



perl Makefile.PL
make test
sudo make install

(If you don't have sudo installed, run the final command as root.)

What's New in This Release:
Deprecating News::NNTPAuth in favor of Net::NNTP::Auth.
News::Article is no longer distributed with this, since it's already in CPAN.
Standardized formatting of version numbers and such.
Better documention in the REAMDE file.
