Re: [leafnode-list] Fetch
<< I have a couple of questions. I was running fetch manually, but

to terminate fetch? >>
Either the power switch or the reset button (if available) should
do. If the machine refuses to stop, pull the power plug.
Hope That Helps!
Seriously, "kill -INT" or ^C are the correct ways. fetch catches
that signal and cleans up nicely after itself. Using any other
signal means that it *won't* clean up.
I, too, would like to know how to rebuild overview files. I have a
program to "rm" articles out of my news spool after fetching -- it
looks for patterns that the fetch filter can't handle. I'd like those
articles to never show up in my trn newsreader (except for their
article numbers being reserved); currently, their subject lines show
up but when I hit "n" and get sent to them, I get "Article not
available" or some such.
