[Fwd: Sponsor wanted for new newspost package]

I also have changed the manpage and want to show it:

.TH "NEWSPOST" "1" "2.1.1" "Jim Faulkner" ""
newspost \- a usenet binary autoposter

... no changes before here ...

This causes par2 files to be made, by calling an external program, usually
par2create. The call must be given in quotes and WITHOUT the file list,
example: -2 'par2create -s12288000'.
Newspost will create a par2 directory,chdir there, call par2
to create the par2 files, and chdir() .. Then it will do the normal job.
At the end, it will again chdir to par2,
ignore options -2 -a -A -B -d -D -e -E -t, and with system() call itself,
so that the contents of the par2 directory is posted too.
This option does not work if the par2 directory - or a normal file with
this name - exists. Before use, you must delete or move the par2
file or directory.
\fB\-l\fR <\fInumber\fP>
Sets the number of lines per message to <\fInumber\fP>.
In the old days most people used to post
messages which are between 5000 and 10000 lines long.  By default, this is
now set to 50000. Note: For uuencoded messages, this is the actual number of
lines in the body of the message; but for yencoded messages, it's used to
determine the size of each segment before encoding, by multiplying the
specified number of lines by 45 (which is the size of a uuencoded line
before encoding). Thus, the size of each segment before encoding is the
same for either method, but the actual line count for yencoded segments
will vary.

... no changes after here ...
