1. Off-line news reader for LInux ?

I'm looking for an off-line news reader for Linux. I've tried 'atp' (and
uqwk to create QWK packets on the remote host) but I'm not satisfied with it.
One solution is to run a DOS off-line reader via DOSemu, but I wouldn't like
to install DOSemu just to use one program. Any ideas will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
