avoid sed... use awk, perl, ... :-) Actually, with either awk or
perl you can probably do a 100% RFC822-compatible extraction since they
allow things like looping. (I know, we're getting overly theoretical here,
and setting $MATCH as in the above quoted pattern will probably
meet your "real-life" needs anyway. :)
FROM=`formail -zxFrom: | \
sed -e 's/ *([^)]*) *//g' -e 's/.*<\([^>]*\)>.*/\1/g'`
I've been using the above recipe that Era posted for a few days now with
good luck.What kind of disadvantage is there in using sed compared to awk?
How would it be stated using awk?
* ^From:.*[ <]\/[^ <]*(_at_)[^ >]*
To replace the the sed script above to $MATCH, per your last recommendation,
would I state it as:
FROM=* ^From:.*[ <]\/[^ <]+(_at_)[^ >]+
