[leafnode-list] Fetchnews and Shell Script


I would like to create a shell script, which will look into out.going every
so often and see if there are any contents, and if there are, to run
fetchnews -P.  I am not very knowledgable with shell scripts, and not sure
how I would go about seeing if there are any contents in out.going.  Could
somebody help me?  I was thinking something like the following, but I think
I am missing something:

cd /var/spool/news/out.going
	if == ? then fetchnews -P
