to save disk space. Here is a patch for mhonarc perl script (against 2.0.1)
to handle such a setup.
For example, if you choose to do a 'gzip msg[0-9]*.html' in list
directory after processing income, the patched version should correctly
interpret msg*.html.gz files decompressing/compressing them if needed.
We use GNU gzip 1.2.4.
From what I see from the patch, I see nothing is done about
links. For example, navigational links in messages point to filenames
with just a ".html" extension, and not ".html.gz". How do the links
work? Is your HTTP server smart enough to check for a ".gz" of a
file? On a local file read from the client, neither Netscape or Lynx
does this. If your HTTP server is smart, I would guess not all
HTTP servers behave this way.
