Which bits of mhonarc and mharc should I actually look at to achieve
what I need to do...
MHonArc does not handle archive division by month or year at all. mharc
does, which is the reason why Earl suggested it.
A long time ago, Earl handed me this script:
I wasn't interested in archive division at that time, but the script was
designed for handling it (I think). However, making use of such a script
does require Perl knowledge (unlike most other MHonArc stuff).
maybe there is a bit of mharc
which can help me do the yearly indexing...
but which bit!!
Guess you have to put a little effort to study the mharc docs to find out.
But it's not necessary to automate the process. Since you still seem to
do much of the work manually, you could simply start a new MHonArc
archive once a year and manually create an umbrella index page.
