Subject: 12. How can I set my rom' line for my posts?
Use the .slrnrc settings:
set hostname "YOUR.HOST.NAME"
set username "USERNAME"
set realname "YOUR REAL NAME"
This will cause slrn to use a From line of the form:
From: USERNAME@YOUR.HOST.NAME (YOUR REAL NAME)
Finally, if a slang function called
exists, then it will be used to generate the rom' header, e.g.,
define make_from_string_hook ()
return "W. J. Clinton <firstname.lastname@example.org>";
