Tin project is a full-screen easy to use Netnews reader.

It can read news locally (i.e., /var/spool/news) or remotely (rtin or tin -r option) via a NNTP (Network News Transport Protocol) server.

It will automatically utilize NOV (News OVerview) style index files if available locally or via the NNTP XOVER command.

Quick Install:

./configure --help (or ./conf-tin)

check your local setup in:

compile with:
make build (or cd src; make)

install with:
make install

Install at your own risk.

What's New in This Release:
A few possible buffer overflows were fixed.
