Re: converting Majordomo digests to HTML

Does anyone know what I need to do to get the Subject lines to
get converted correctly? All that is in the digest is this:

The simplest approach is preprocess the input by deleting
the blank line that occurs between the separator and the
start of the message header.  MHonArc does not support
multi-line separators, so the blank line signals an end
of the message header (ie. results in a NULL header).

Here is a simple preprocessor in Perl:

    while (<>) {
        if (/^--------------------------------------/) {

If the program is called premdomo, something like the following
can be done:

    unix-prompt> premdomo majordomo.digest > digest-for-mhonarc
    unix-prompt> mhonarc [your-options-here] digest-for-mhonarc

With the preprocess, and defining the MSGSEP resource as
you have already done, you should get the results you want.
