       Liferea - RSS/RDF and Atom news aggregator


       liferea [OPTIONS]


       Liferea  (Linux  Feed  Reader)  is  an RSS/RDF and Atom news aggregator
       which also supports CDF channels,  OCS,  and  OPML  directories.   It's
       intended  to be a clone of the Windows-only FeedReader.  It can be used
       to maintain a list of subscribed feeds, browse and search through their
       items and displays their contents.


       Liferea options:

              output version information and exit

       --help display a option overview and exit

              Start  Liferea  with  its mainwindow in STATE: shown, iconified,

              Print debugging messages of all types

              Print debugging messages for the cache handling

              Print debugging messages of the configuration handling

              Print debugging messages of all GUI functions

              Enables HTML rendering debugging. Each time Liferea renders HTML
              output   it   will   also   dump   the   generated   HTML   into

              Print debugging messages of all parsing functions

              Print debugging messages when  a  function  takes  too  long  to

              Print debugging messages for the plugin loading

              Print debugging messages when entering/leaving functions

              Print debugging messages of the feed update processing

              Print verbose debugging messages


       To  allow  integration  with  other  programs  Liferea  profives a DBUS
       interface for automatic  creation  of  new  subscriptions.  The  script
       liferea-add-feed is a convenient way to use this interface. Just pass a
       valid feed URL as parameter and the feed will  be  added  to  the  feed
       list.  You  can  also  pass  non-feed  URLs to use feed auto discovery.

              If  a  proxy  is not specified in the Liferea preferences (which
              uses the proxy settings in gconf), then  Liferea  will  use  the
              proxy  specified in $http_proxy.  $http_proxy should be set to a
              URI    specifying    the    desired    proxy,    for     example
