< How much effort (man months?) did it take to implement a MIME parser?

I've written several filter programs which have MIME parsers in them. Each
one took just a few days to write. The MIME parsing is the easy part. Most
of the time was spent on figuring out what to do with the data which the
parser had split apart, rather than figuring out how to do the parsing.

                                        Tony Hansen
                            hansen(_at_)pegasus(_dot_)att(_dot_)com, 
tony(_at_)attmail(_dot_)com
                                att!pegasus!hansen, attmail!tony

P.S. Do people still use the antiquated term "man months" instead of "staff
months"? I'm shocked! :-)
