I am looking to find an answer to why Mhonarc would add files via this format
mhonarc -add -rcfile something -outdir someplace <filename-in
Here, mhonarc will treat input as a *single* message.
and see those same files (I cleared the db file between these two) as "no
new files" when done this way
mhonarc -add -rcfile something -outdir someplace *
Here, mhonarc will treat input as mail folders. If files, UUCP-style
mailbox files; if directories, MH-style mail folders.
below you will find some real output of when I try the "*" way.
mhonarc -add -rcfile /usr/local/etc/mhonarc/news/rcfile/ripco1/alt.perl
-outdir /tmp/news/2 /tmp/news/*.alt.perl
Reading resource file: /usr/local/etc/mhonarc/news/rcfile/ripco1/alt.perl ...
Adding messages to /tmp/news/2
No new messages
Are *.alt.perl plain files? If so, I would guess that the default MSGSEP
resource does not work for them. What does a *.alt.perl file look like?
