There are serveral newsreaders available on gl. The most commonly used are: rn, trn, xrn, pine and Netscape. Since rn, trn, and xrn were designed specifically to read news, you will find that they are more powerful than either pine or Netscape for reading and posting. xrn is the xwindows version of rn and it is only available on workstations that run xwindows (the SGIs).
