I've never seen code that passes wildcards into arrays before like this
but purhaps perl is processing it somewhat like a regular expression.
In a regexp, a "." is used like the "?" is used in DOS DIR command (meaning
match any one character in this location). If it is treating it like
a regexp then you might try escaping the "." so that perl knows to treat
it like a real ".". I haven't tested this but you might try using somelike
like (the "\" is the standard perl escape):
mhonarc only handles wildcard definitions of the form (see mhreadmail.pl,
My current resource file reads:
And this results in the "Could not process..." warning for me....
Could not process part with given Content-Type:
application/vnd.ms-excel; name="idp97.xls" ;
x-mac-type="584C5335" ; x-mac-creator="5843454C"
As a test, I edited all of the above instances to omit 'vnd.' and modified
my email client (Eudora) to
use 'application/ms-excel' instead; worked fine. (Unfortunately MIME
types are harder to standardize than define ;-) So I assumed the culprit
was the '.' and started looking at the code in mhexternal.pl which parses
the content-type to see if it was parsing the above syntax correctly.
However if it worked for you without making the mods/patches to
mhexternal.pl, maybe I'm barking-up the wrong tree.
