I need a program that will refresh a newsgroup at given times I specify throughout the day and search the headers for cretin phrases or keywords that I have specified. Then it will post the file set I have associated with those key words. The post must be in yenc format: [url removed, login to view] .It needs to be able to handle multiple requests possible through a queen system. It will post the headers according do to a default topic that I preset for the file set. A open source program may be used to post file, and to retrieve the headers if that will simplify the matter. A the program we use now to manually post things is [url removed, login to view] source code is provided on the site. I know of no opensource windows usenet readers, if you know of one and think you can make this work let me knwo and ill try it before i give the go to use it. A program that sits between 2 open source programs like this would be ok, or just write a brand new one. What ever will make it work. Example: At 9AM the program gets new headers for the group [url removed, login to view] It scans them for the designated keywords, and finds a match: “I need the memos?? posted by John Doe The program will queen the files associated with hat keyword. It also finds another match; “Meeting notes?? posted by Jane Smith The program will queen the files associated with hat keyword. After the scan is complete it will start to post the queered files. The program will scan the groups I specify thought the day at the times I specify In some sort of config.
