gnewitems

gnewitems lists recent replies to GROGGS. It requires access level 1, and its syntax is :
gnewitems [<options>] [<switches>]
gnewitems lists all index entries made in the last 3 hours (the timescale can be changed using the last and hours options). An index entry is made whenever an item is replied to, edited, or created, or whenever the message of the day is changed. This command is useful for checking what's been happening recently. If an item is a continuation of another item, gnewitems will prefix its subject with the itemid of the previous item in square brackets like this : [K1234567], unless /nocont is set.

gnewitems formats its output for 80 columns (by default), and writes to the terminal (via a pagewaiter unless /display is on) in interactive mode, or the TO dataset in non-interactive mode.


Example :
$ gnewitems last 12
