nn-tk-16.4: description + notes

nn-tk retains the basic structure of screen mode nn where you first select the articles in a group you want to read and then page through them. All the old nn commands should still work.

The TCL/TK code provides a GUI interface with command menus and buttons, the use of the mouse to select articles, a scrolling panel for displaying articles and group selection using either of scrolling panel or cascading menus. There is a panel that displays the Reference thread tree structure and this can be used for selecting and unselecting articles. Killing and selecting of articles can be configured using a GUI interface. If exmh is available then there is also an internal editor for posting items and the ability to send and read MIME and PGP messages as well as to turn URL's into buttons for passing to netscape (or another WWW reader). With exmh v2 there is the ability to display inline HTML.

After installing nn or nn-tk, you may wish to setup some configuration files.
