Decoding the 'regex-decoding' in the mc 'script'
is hard work, for me.
After weeks of trying to bribe myself to do so, I finally sat down and
took a look at the regex for man pages.
As far as I can tell, foo.l, foo.n, foo.3, foo.3a and foo.3bar will all
be treated as man pages. Filenames like foo.3.1 and foo.313 will not be
so treated. Probably the simplest solution, assuming machine-generated
and -parsed filenames, is to change the names from 'newsgroup.nnn' to
something like 'newsgroup.1.nnn' or 'newsgroup.00nnn'.
Regex is a write-only languish.
