Summary of GNUS Commands

   Reading news is a two step process:

  1. Choose a newsgroup in the Newsgroup buffer.

  2. Select articles from the Summary buffer.  Each article selected is
     displayed in the Article buffer in a large window, below the
     Summary buffer in its small window.

   Each buffer has commands particular to it, but commands that do the
same things have similar keybindings.  Here are commands for the
Newsgroup and Summary buffers:

     In the Newsgroup buffer, suspend GNUS.  You can return to GNUS
     later by selecting the Newsgroup buffer and typing `g' to get
     newly arrived articles.

     In the Newsgroup buffer, update your `.newsrc' initialization file
     and quit GNUS.

     In the Summary buffer, exit the current newsgroup and return to the
     Newsgroup buffer.  Thus, typing `q' twice quits GNUS.

     In the Newsgroup buffer, list all the newsgroups available on your
     news server.  This may be a long list!

     In the Newsgroup buffer, list only the newsgroups to which you
     subscribe and which contain unread articles.

     In the Newsgroup buffer, unsubscribe from (or subscribe to) the
     newsgroup listed in the line that point is on.  When you quit GNUS
     by typing `q', GNUS lists your subscribed-to newsgroups in your
     `.newsrc' file.  The next time you start GNUS, you see only the
     newsgroups listed in your `.newsrc' file.

     In the Newsgroup buffer, "kill" the current line's newsgroup--don't
     show it in the Newsgroup buffer from now on.  This affects future
     GNUS sessions as well as the present session.

     When you quit GNUS by typing `q', GNUS writes information in the
     file `.newsrc' describing all newsgroups except those you have

     In the Newsgroup buffer, select the group on the line under the
     cursor and display the first unread article in that group.

     In the Summary buffer,

        - Select the article on the line under the cursor if none is

        - Scroll the text of the selected article (if there is one).

        - Select the next unread article if at the end of the current

     Thus, you can move through all the articles by repeatedly typing

     In the Newsgroup Buffer, move point to the previous newsgroup
     containing unread articles.

     In the Summary buffer, scroll the text of the article backwards.

     Move point to the next unread newsgroup, or select the next unread

     Move point to the previous unread newsgroup, or select the previous
     unread article.

     Move point to the next or previous item, even if it is marked as
     read.  This does not select the article or newsgroup on that line.

     In the Summary buffer, do an incremental search of the current
     text in the Article buffer, just as if you switched to the Article
     buffer and typed `C-s'.

     In the Summary buffer, search forward for articles containing a
     match for REGEXP.

`C-c C-s C-n'
`C-c C-s C-s'
`C-c C-s C-d'
`C-c C-s C-a'
     In the Summary buffer, sort the list of articles by number,
     subject, date, or author.

     In the Summary buffer, read the next or previous article with the
     same subject as the current article.
