Looking for a good binary news reader

Hey there...I'm looking for a good news reader, suited for downloading binary archives in newsgroup. It needs to have binary news robot functions. Think of a "Newsbin", but for Linux. That's the program I need. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Klibido is strictly for binaries, it will not allow you to read regular threads, but it is fast.

Pan has gotten much, much better in the last year in handling binaries and it also handles standard threads.

No idea what you mean by robot functions.

Good Luck
