    9.24: How do I fetch a news article or the active newsgroups?

    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")'

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
