Hi everybody.

Adding newsgroups by using ctlinnd command takes a long time.
So i used to create new groups simply by a command like this below:
awk '{ print $2" 0000000000 0000000001 y" }' unwanted.log >> active
(i don't really use this before analyzing awk output by hand).

Therefore a lot of errors may get in into active file such as duplicate
newsgroups (1),
unallowed symbols (2) or incorrect names like "alt.test." (3).

ctlinnd newgroup won't create such a newsgroups,
but just imagine how long it would take to create even 1000 groups?

Are there any other CORRECT methods to create new groups?
