def get_article_text() -> str: ... def set_article_text(value: str) -> None: ...
article_text = property(get_article_text, set_article_text)
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.
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.
