DESCRIPTIONwhatsnewfm is a utility to filter the daily newsletter from freshmeat.net The main purpose is to cut the huge newsletter to a smaller size by only showing items that you didn't see before. The items already seen will be stored in a database. After some time, the items expire and will be shown again the next time they are included in a newsletter. If you find an item that you consider particularly useful, you can add it to a "hot" list. Items in the hot list are checked for updates so that you don't miss anything about your favourite programs.
OPTIONS-c config file This optional parameter selects a different configuration file. Default is ~/.whatsnewfmrc. whatsnewfm.pl Standard mode of operation. A mail containing a newsletter will be read from stdin, parsed and the results mailed. whatsnewfm.pl view [ regexp ] Prints the "hot" database. If regexp is given, only entries matching that regular expression are printed. Pattern matches are always case-insensitive. whatsnewfm.pl add [ project id [ comment ] ] Adds project id to the "hot" database. An optional comment describing the project may be given. If no project id is given on the command line, data will be read from stdin. Each line must consist of a project id optionally followed by a whitespace and a comment. whatsnewfm.pl del [ project id ] [ project id ] [ ... ] Removes project id from the "hot" database. Multiple project ids may be given. If no project id is given on the command line, data will be read from stdin. Each line must consist of one or more project ids (separated by whitespace) to be deleted.
FILES~/.whatsnewfmrc Personal whatsnewfm configuration file. ~/.whatsnewfm.db Personal database with "hot" and "old" entries.
