ngetlite: retrieve files from NNTP hosts
NAMEngetlite - retrieve files from NNTP hosts
DESCRIPTIONngetlite retrieves messages as described in each listfile. Listfiles are generated with:
nget -w <listfile> <retrieval args>
In almost all circumstances, you will want to download and decode directly with nget. However, in some cases ngetlite can be useful on computers with low ram or cpu, that can't handle the large cache files needed for some groups. You can run nget -w on some other computer and then do the actual downloading with ngetlite using very little resources.
EXAMPLESThe following sequence of commands demonstrates a typical usage:
nget -w foo.list -G alt.foo -r "\.png"
nget -N -G alt.foo -r "\.png"
- Socket timeout value in seconds.
- Max number of attempts per article.
