News::Overview is a Perl object that manages condensed information about Usenet posts in the overview format. It accepts information from an NNTP XOVER command, and allows for basic searching and sorting of the referenced articles. It was designed to be part of several other news modules.
News::Archive is a Usenet news archiving package for downloading and later accessing news articles in bulk. It can load articles laid out in INN format, retrieve them from a running news server, or just take articles one-by-one. It is compatible with News::Web and Net::NNTP::Server, so the articles can be shared either via the Web or via NNTP.
