A Usenet client that supports both the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) and a news spool on the local filesystem
Version: 0.9.9p1slrn (S-Lang read news) is an open source newsreader, i.e. a program that will allow you to easily access a newsserver to read messages from the Internet News service (also known as 'Usenet').
Operating System: Mac OS X
slrn runs in console mode on various Unix-like systems (including Linux), 32-bit Windows, OS/2, BeOS and VMS. Beside the usual features of a newsreader slrn supports scoring rules to highlight, sort or kill articles based on information from their header.
slrn is highly customizable, allows free key-bindings and can easily be extended using the sophisticated S-Lang macro language. Offline reading is possible by using either slrnpull (shipped with slrn) or a local newsserver (like leafnode or INN).
NOTE: You can also build slrn on your Mac using the Fink package manager with the follwing command (without the quotes): "fink install slrn".
