Announce mhn2mbox: A MHonArc to "mbox" Converter
mhn2mbox is a Perl script for converting html files generated by MHonArc
back into a pseudo mbox format.
Official version: 0.3
Beta version: 0.35
A program for converting a file to BASE64. The script currently uses the
mmencode program which is available on Linux platforms.
Installation and Configuration
Copy the script to your computer and change the line which reads
"use lib '......' ; Library where MhonArc libs"
so that it reflects where your installation of MHonArc stores its library
HINT: Look at the second line of the mhonarc command line script.
Initial cut of the script. Derived from h2mbox.pl and mhmsgfile.pl
Changed script to write to a named ouput file rather than to STDOUT
- Nested messages within a MHonArc file are left as flat messages in the
converted mbox file.
- Script uses up lots of memory when working on large numbers of messages
or very large messages.
- The new mbox file is seen as one large file by Pine.
If you are working with messages which have 8 bit information in the body
of the messages, you will want to modify the script to detect this
and for those messages print out the following MIME header:
... rather than the default headers that the script prints.
