|NNTP-Ext 2.1.2 LIST ACTIVE|
LIST ACTIVE [wildmat] LIST ACTIVE is exactly the same as the LIST command specified in RFC977. The responses and the format should exactly match the LIST command without arguments. If the optional matching parameter is specified, the list is limited to only the groups that match the pattern. Specifying a single group is usually very efficient for the server, and multiple groups may be specified by using wildmat patterns (described later in this document), not regular expressions. If nothing is matched an empty list is returned, not an error. This command first appeared in the UNIX reference version.
