This programm is an attempt to retrieve statistics from news posts. Current categories are:

  • Posts per person
  • Posts per Browser
  • Posts per OS
  • Posts per domain
  • Posts per network
  • Messages must be stored in a spooler ( I use slrn and slrnpull ) and the statistics are calculated on a per-month basis.

    A small example of the programm output can be found here.

    This programm is released under GPL license. You can see the source here, and download current version here.

    Because usenet is a strang place indeed, you can read about the problems regarding statistics-extraction from headers in the README file.
