Re: Using the Add option

Just an added note.  The problem seems to be centered around not being
able to find the mhonarc.db file.  I've tried several combinations of
-outdir and -dbfile, but no success.  I am using the double-backslashes
on the command-line to define -outdir.  This is all being done on NTW4.0
with Perl5.
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Starting with an index page with 100 messages, I tried it (with mhonarc
1.2.2) and I get an index page with only the added messages.  All the
others aren't listed.  They're still in the mhonarc.db and in the
directory, but not in the index.  When I tried to rebuild the index with
"-editidx" I got the following error and an empty index page:

      D:\temp\test>perl c:\mhonarc\mhonarc -dbfile mhonarc.db -editidx
        ERROR: Database read error of .\mhonarc.db:
         Can't locate .mhonarc.db in @INC at (eval 3) line 1.

I've got an archive that's got about 5000 messages in it now with an
index page that only lists the last 100 messages in reverse
chronological order.  Currently it gets completely rebuild every night
when I process new mail.  Originally with version 1, I had tried to use
the "-add" option, but the index page kept getting trashed.  As a result
I had to make a second pass with mhonarc to rebuild the index page

My question is:  With the latest version, if I use the "-add" option, do
I need to regenerate the index page, or is that done in the same pass
with the "-add".

It should get regenerated automatically with the -add option.  If you
try out the latest version, and still have problems, please send a
message to this list.
