The news command displays systemwide news announcements in a consistent format. It's primarily used for system administrators to provide information to users on a multi-user IIgs running the GNO/ME system.
Articles are simply text files placed in the /var/news directory on the system. When a user issues the news command, these files are read and displayed to the user in an easy-to-read format.
