NAME
       dreadart - Extract article from spool given message-id or hash / Run
       validity check on articles referenced by queue file

SYNOPSIS
       dreadart [ -v ] [ -h ] [ -f file/- ] [ message-id/h1.h2 ]


DESCRIPTION
       DReadArt will look a message-id or hash-code pair up in the dhistory
       database, access the article file in question, verify that it is a
       valid spool file, and dump it to the standard output.

       -v Tells dreadart to simply verify that it is a valid spool file and
       not bother dumping it to stdout.  Usually used in combination with
       didump pipingto dreadart.  By default, this will not verify header-only
       feeds...  use the -v -h combination to do that.

       -h Tells dreadart to only display the article's headers.  Also allows
       dreadart to display articles that were fed-in in a header-only feed
       (otherwise it refuses to display such articles).

       -f file/- Specifies a queue file to obtain message-id's from or the
       standard input if '-' is specified.  You can also pipe the output of
       didump or  didump -f to dreadart as a diagnostic tool.

       message-id/h1.h2 Or you can simply specify a message-ID on the command
       line, enclosed in single quotes, or you can specify a hash key.
