Current Perl documentation can be found at

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

Use the Net::NNTP or News::NNTPClient modules, both available from CPAN. This can make tasks like fetching the newsgroup list as simple as:

    perl -MNews::NNTPClient
      -e 'print News::NNTPClient->;new->list("newsgroups")'
