Download List


nget is a commandline NNTP file grabber. It automatically pieces together multipart postings for easy retrieval, even substituting parts from multiple servers and newsgroups. It handles disconnects gracefully, resuming after the last part successfully downloaded, and caching of header data for quick access. It automatically downloads only as many par/par2 files as needed.

An error in the configure script which occurred
when exceptions were not found was fixed. A few
problems that occurred when NGETCACHE != NGETHOME
were fixed. Problems with -a and servers that
don't support newsgroup descriptions or return
weird results were fixed. Absolute paths are now
allowed in --text=mbox:<filename>, and tab
is supported as the field separator in XPAT

A bug in the knapsack algorithm that in some cases could cause a sub-optimal set of par2 files to be retrieved has been fixed. Some cases where config file or command line values weren't error checked have been fixed. The --fullxover arg has been added to override the config file fullxover settings. This release handles a 400 response code better. There are miscellaneous fixes and code cleanups.

This version allows the same server ID to be used
for multiple hosts, in order to share header cache
data. Extraneous exception information on TCP
errors is no longer printed. getopt_long is
searched for in libgnugetopt. Handling of
incomplete par/par2 files was improved. The
handling of incomplete data files was improved
when par2 files are available. Compilation with
the Mac OS X version of gcc 3.3 was fixed.
BSD-style regex word boundaries are supported.
PAR1 handling on bigendian systems was fixed.

This version uses gcc's automatic dependency
generation, fixes problems with uulib mis-parsing some
subject lines, makes -K/--no-decode imply --no-autopar,
renames files with decode warnings/errors so they don't
cause reposts to be dupeskipped, fixes a sigpipe on
broken connection on some platforms, includes better
handling of completely damaged par files, and shows
autopar status messages by default.
