nndoc is a cute little thing that will let you read a single file
as a newsgroup. Several files types are supported:
You can also use the special “file type”
guess, which means
nndoc will try to guess what file type it is looking at.
digest means that
nndoc should guess what digest type the
nndoc will not try to change the file or insert any extra headers into
it—it will simply, like, let you use the file as the basis for a
group. And that's it.
If you have some old archived articles that you want to insert into your
new & spiffy Gnus mail back end,
nndoc can probably help you with
that. Say you have an old RMAIL file with mail that you now want
to split into your new
nnml groups. You look at that file using
nndoc (using the G f command in the group buffer
(see Foreign Groups)), set the process mark on all the articles in
the buffer (M P b, for instance), and then re-spool (B r)
nnml. If all goes well, all the mail in the RMAIL
file is now also stored in lots of
nnml directories, and you can
delete that pesky RMAIL file. If you have the guts!
