article_text Property

The full text of the article (without the headers).

Syntax

def get_article_text() -> str: ...
def set_article_text(value: str) -> None: ...

article_text = property(get_article_text, set_article_text)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property contains the full text of the article (without the headers). If the class is not connected or current_article is empty, the value of this property is an empty string. Otherwise, it contains the full text of the article as reported by the server.

The news_server is asked about the text of the article only if the current_article property has changed. If current_article has not changed, the class returns a cached value.

When posting articles, this property contains the full text of the article to post.

It is advisable that the text contained in this property be a collection of lines with lengths less than or equal to 80 bytes separated by CRLF ("\r\n") . The text in the article lines must contain 7-bit characters so that the article can be successfully transferred through the various Usenet news servers on the Internet.

The class automatically escapes lines that start with a "." by adding another "." as specified in RFC 977. The article text is unescaped by the news server, so the process is fully transparent.
