9. What software is good for posting binaries?
Power-Post 2000 is available for free from http://www.cosmicwolf.com/.
This is the recommended posting software for all uuencoded AB(M)A binaries posting. While some other applications are just as capable, Power-Post is the easiest to configure to post in the format required in AB(M)A. Additionally, it is freeware.
More to be added (and replaced) later
Do not use Power-post 2000 Build 25b yEnc version, it is broken.
Newspost is a command-line posting utility for *nix systems. It is available from http://newsposts.unixcab.org The author writes of newspost:
"Newspost is a full-featured USEnet binary autoposter. It is meant as an all-in-one posting solution. In addition to posting files, it can post text prefixes, and generate and post .SFV files and .PAR volumes."
A typical command looks like this:
newspost -y -a file.par -c file.sfv -i newshost.myISP.com -n alt.binaries.multimedia.anime -s "My Subject" *.rar
The above would post all files ending in rar in the current directory in yEnc
Please see the newspost site for a full list of command-line options. Graphical
front-ends for newspost also exist - check freshmeat.net for details.
This is the recommended posting software for all yEnc AB(M)A binaries posting.
