Thanks for the kind words....
All the info is in the docs, but it's sometimes hard to ferret it out and
integrate the bits from various places.
MHonArc is a supremely flexible product, but the learning curve is fairly
steep for non-programmer types and there are some tricks that aren't in
the docs at all.
I agree. The syntax of the resource files seemed to be so complicated
for me that I took almost a year to start diging through the
documentation and examples until I found out that it is relatively
easy to configure MHonArc.
A good example of this "hidden" power is the undocumented (in any place I
could find) ability to refer to resources created with <DEFINEVARS> on the
command-line. Earl clued me into that ability in response to my question
about getting command-line parms to apply to an <OTHERINDEXES> resource
It would be an interesting *and* useful exercise for the list as a whole
to try to develop a collection of these sorts of tricks, tips and helpful
I fully agree. I am trying to make some resource files available
which simulate the hypermail archive style. Hopefully I will have
them finished in january next year. It would be of great help for
other people to have some well documented resource files which are
ready to run.
I hope I will be able to convince others to contribute their style
files for the MHonArc community.
