I am new to this mailing list, and also a new (or is that still wannabe?)
user of MHonArc, which I thought looked nice - and it still does, except
for the fact that it doesn't like my mail. Here goes...
MHonArc 1.2.2 being used on...
Sparcstation 1+ running SunOS 4.1.3 and Perl 5.000
Sparcstation 5 running Solaris 2.4 and Perl 5.001
The behaviour appears to be identical on both.
When digestiong mail folders with large ugly messages (at, say 688242
bytes), MHonArc runs out of memory. It wanted to try to address this
with the -savemem option but...
All attemps to use command line options result in a core dump (Bus Error).
The program is last seen at:
264: eval ('$' . $pkg . '\'opt_' . $opt . " = \$arg;");
Now, is this mainly a MHonArc problem or a Perl problem? (I haven't tried
using Perl 4.0 yet).
So, I hardcoded my precious -savemen ( $SLOW = 1; ) in MHonArc but it
still runs out of memory. Bummer. 680k isn't that much is it?
Any solutions to any of the problems? I've had a look in the mailing
list archives but I didn't find these specific problems mentioned
anywhere. The command line options thing is not critical as I can
always get past them hacking the Perl code, but the memory contraints
or whatever it may be is worse.
