For similar reasons, this is dangerous. You can try to fool around
with xargs, or just break down and write a temporary script. Better
yet, if you intend to do this on a regular basis, use a real mailing
list manager such as SmartList.
man xargs, or look at comp.unix.shell in DejaNews until you feel
Personnally, I tried using xargs to place a list that was on several
lines to one big line. For some reason, I couldn't get xargs to work
correctly. This is what I did instead:
tr '\012' ' ' < source > bigline
echo "" >> bigline
The echo is to add a \012 at the end of the big line.
I had the xarg problem on a Sun Os.
