;;; Commentary:

;; nnnil is a Gnus backend that provides no groups or articles.  It's useful
;; as a primary select method when you want all your real select methods to
;; be secondary or foreign.

;;; Code:

(eval-and-compile
  (require 'nnheader))

(defvar nnnil-status-string "")

(defun nnnil-retrieve-headers (articles &optional group server fetch-old)
  (save-excursion
    (set-buffer nntp-server-buffer)
    (erase-buffer))
  'nov)

(defun nnnil-open-server (server &optional definitions)
  t)

(defun nnnil-close-server (&optional server)
  t)

(defun nnnil-request-close ()
  t)

(defun nnnil-server-opened (&optional server)
  t)

(defun nnnil-status-message (&optional server)
  nnnil-status-string)

(defun nnnil-request-article (article &optional group server to-buffer)
  (setq nnnil-status-string "No such group")
