I want to have an annotated index file. I went to the trouble of putting
this in my rc file:
<!-- Annotation begin -->
<!-- Annotation end -->
AFAIK you can not do it with mhonarc up to know. All information
that mhonarc can use in the index pages has to be in the .mhonarc.db
Therefore a solution would be to and the add your comments to the orginal
message as a header and then patch mhonarc to store it in the .mhonarc.db
file. One also has to introduce a mhonarc variable $XCOMMENT$ (or whatever).
After that (yeah, hard work :-). After that you would be able to use
$XCOMMENT$ just like $FROM$ in the resource file.
It may be even better to introduce a new option
-addheader [list of headers to additionaly store in mhonarc.db]
would store the header field value of Comment: for each message in
the mhonarc.db and creates a new resource file variable $XCOMMMENT$.
The obvious problem is that when I add new messages, apparently the index
list is overwritten rather than appended to, so I lose all my annotations.
How can I keep them?
I hope the answer isn't making a backup copy, and cutting and pasting over
the appropriate LI entries...
No :-) But there may be better solutions.
