This repo contains a *never-finished* NZB client for AmigaOS It was a multi-threaded application using the MUI graphical interface, but i've stopped working on it since i've found NZBGet and realized it was less work to just port that... The neither finished aminet-like readme file was as follows: Short: AmiNZB - NZB Download Manager Author: Diego Casorran Type: comm/tcp Version: 0.1 Architecture: m68k-amigaos > 3.0 Introduction ============================================================================ What is/are those NZB files, you ask? Are a pre-formatted XML files which basically contains Usenet's Message-IDs... Those NZB files are automatically generated by some WWW engines which its main job is to locate multi-part messages (segments) from the usenet groups alt.binaries.#? AmiNZB downloads all those segments, decodes them, and joining each decoded segment is how the final file is created. Also, needs to mention AmiNZB is a multi-threaded application, the main task is reserved to the MUI Interface, theres another separated task to the File Selection Manager, which creates its own mui application as well to let you select which files from a NZB file to download (has its own NList with multi-select ability), and every time you click on "download selected" from that window, a new task is created which the Usenet Manager, this task handles the downloading of all segments, decoding and saving them to disk. CONFIGURING IT TO WORK WITH IBrowse: ============================================================================ Go to the MIME settings, and add a new entry with the following data: MIME Type: application/x-nzb Extension: nzb Action: External viewer Viewer: <path-to>AmiNZB Arguments: %f ...and thats all, AmiNZB will be loaded when you click on a NZB file (if it isn't already) and its Manager window will pop-up, where you can select which files to download.
