ydecode requires a filename argument, I believe. If you're running Linux
or another system that uses /dev/stdin as a device file for standard
input, then you can ydecode a news article within trn by typing

  |ydecode /dev/stdin

Or you can select multiple articles and then try

  :|ydecode /dev/stdin

If that works for you, then create a trn macro to speed things up.
