How did you actually try it? I got results under Solaris and Win98.
I think the problem is with the DOS shell. It does not handle quoting
the same way as Unix shells. If using a DOS shell, try:
mhonarc -msgsep ^\.$ ...
Note that I did not put any quote marks around the -msgsep argument.
Using a resource file will avoid potential shell nuances.
The only problem is that the first message in the file was skipped.
The reason for this is that mhonarc expects to find a MSGSEP line at
the beginning of the file (which is the case in regular mailbox files).
The work-around is to add a line with just the "." at the very beginning.
I'll try to see if mhonarc can be more clever about handling cases where
a MSGSEP line does not exist at the beginning.
Somewhat related note, you may want try out the Cygwin environment for
Win32 systems, <URL:http://sourceware.cygnus.com/cygwin/>. It provides
a bash shell and other Unix-type utilities. The bash shell is much
nicer for invoking programs from the command-line.
