linux default iconNews::GnusFilter Publisher's description

A package for scoring usenet posts

News::GnusFilter is a Perl module for scripting an inline message filter. It adds "Gnus-Warning:" headers when presented with evidence of atypical content or otherwise nonstandard formatting for usenet messages.

News::GnusFilter should be drop-in compatible with other newsreaders that are capable of filtering a usenet posting through an external application prior to display. See the CONFIGURATION section below for descriptions of tunable parameters, and the MESSAGE TESTS section for descriptions of the exported subroutines.


# ~/.gnusfilter - scoring script

require 5.006;
use strict;
use News::GnusFilter qw/:tests groan references NSLOOKUP VERBOSE/;

NSLOOKUP = ""; # disables nslookups for bogus_address test
VERBOSE = 1; # noisier output for debugging

my $goof = News::GnusFilter->set_score( {
rethreaded => 80,
no_context => 60,
} );

# standard tests - see MESSAGE TESTS for details

check_quotes; # runs multiple tests on quoted paragraphs

# custom tests - see WRITING HEADERS and SCORING

if (check_quotes and not references) {
$goof->{rethreaded} = groan "Callously rethreaded";

if (references and not check_quotes) {
$goof->{no_context} = groan "Missing context";


Your GnusFilter script should be installed as a mime-decoder hook for gnus.
