// NNTP wrapper class 
// Tony Leake Jan 2001 
// tony_leake@hotmail.com 
// Error handling added by Hans Westerbeek, hans@pulse.nl 


// This software may be used and distributed according to the terms 
// of the GNU Public License which may be found at: 
// http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html 

// You are welcome to use/modify/this class, if you use it 
// 'as is' in a project, I would appreciate an e-mail to let me know 
// that it has been useful. If you modify it into something more complete 
// I would appreciate a copy just for curiosity. 

// This class was inspired by (and uses some ideas from) a script by Nate Parsons. 
// which i found at: 
// http://www.phpbuilder.com/forum/read.php3?num=1&id=107915&thread=103470 


// This class simply allows you to make posts onto a news server. 
// If you know the message id of a message you can also reply to it. 
// It was developed to allow me to make a posting and then reply to 
// my own posting (for a service status page). 

// It does not implement the full NNTP protocol and error checking is 
// rudimentary. If you need it to do anything except what I used it for 
// you will need to modify it which hopefully will be fairly easy. 

// USAGE// 

// To start a new news thread 
//    $news=new nntp("news server address", "newsgroup name"); 

//    $news->from ="someone@somewhere.com"; 
//    $news->subject = $heading; 
//    $news->body = "$body"; 
//    $news->domain ="mydomain.com"; 
//    $news->id=$id //should be a unique number. you could make the class do this pretty easily. 
//    $news->send("new"); 

//    to reply to a thread you must also add this line 
//    $news->references ="<$id@domain.com>"; where $id is the orriginal id number and 
//    domain.com is the original domain used for the posting 

//    $news->send("reply"); 

// hw: 
// define a list of error codes
