I have approximately 18,000 messages in an MH-style folder with the
messages spanning 3 years. Unfortunately the messages are not in date
order by their filenames. I would like to sort them into folders
based on the month in their Date: headers and to then archive them via
Suggestions for methods of approach?
The *apparency* (ie I haven't checked this in the source) is that
given messages with filenames starting from 0 and counting up, MHonArc
will create msg####.html files with matching #### digit strings (ie
msg0000.html for 0, msg0001.html for 1 etc). Is this true? If so I
can just run MHonArc on the whole 18,000 (it works, just takes a
while), and then grep out the msg####.html lines to be able to extract
the natural date order of the original message files....
