I tried to look for the answer by myself, and someone has mentioned about
suck, or cpan module. However, I am not very familiar with what these are.
My question is, can anyone recommend any way to archive the newsgroup that
is easy to maintain and use?
Search for NNTP at search.cpan.org and you should find a module
for downloading posts from a news server.
Also try searching on Google for any batch NNTP clients.
As for archiving, if you are refering to web-based archives like what
MHonArc generates, than MHonArc works with news posts, and some users
actually do use it to create web archives of newsgroups.
Mharc, <http://www.mhonarc.org/mharc/>, is one option you can
explore for creating and managing the web archive piece.
