For news administrators running INN and using standard inn history files, a program which
efficiently locates articles that are no longer referenced by the history file and produces a list of
them on the standard output. Nominally used to delete articles that INN has lost track of. This
coupled with a 'expireover -s' to clean your overview files does a pretty good job keeping your
news spool clean.
