i am doing this just for study purpose and if i can get it work, i may keep
it working for some time, but it won't be permanent
i have lots of problem standing on my way and i am searching and reading
docs, manuals and howtos
but , i would appreciate if there are some quick answers, :-)
here are some of them:
1, control, control.cancel, ..., and several other groups which are created
by default seems not allowed to be removed
but, is there any way that i can "hide" them from the group list ?
there's no need to show them on the list to news readers any way, right ?
2, after made some change to the script "get.news.inn" ( installed by suck),
it starts to work
the problem is, by default
A) it checks the localhost first and compares the group names with those on
the remote news server one bye one, then decide which of them should be
i wonder if i can skip this check, and some how tell SUCK that i just want
suck "group a and b and c ..."
i mean i know which groups i want, there's no need to check each time i run
can this be done ? and how ?
B) after the "check", if SUCK notices that there are some new news goups
created on the remote news server, it creats the same group for me locally
and download them ! i got to say that this is a great function !!!
but, in my case, i don't want it to do this extra work, :-(
i want to do it by myself cause i am not trying to make a mirror
(in fact, if A can is solved, i guess this should be soved together)
many many many thanks to all the people who helped me and who will , thanks

| Be careful when using SUCK as some news masters don't like the program
