I have been using mh and then later, nmh for probably 14
or 15 years. A year or two ago, I installed mhonarc so that
quoted mime messages showed only the text like they should and
not mime directives and, even worse, not unprocessed base64
I recently set up another FreeBSD system with nmh and
mhonarc to operate in text mode and everything was fine until I
started to reply to a mime message, one day and got the error
that /usr/local/bin/mha-edit did not exist.
I have no control over the FreeBSD repackaging of mhonarc.
You can download mhonarc directly from www.mhonarc.org. The
mha-mhedit program is contained in the extras/ directory.
BTW, here is the .mh_profile settings I use for mha-mhedit:
mha-mhedit: -editor vim -htmlconv w3m
mha-mhedit-lynx: -stdin -dump -force_html -nolist -width=76
mha-mhedit-w3m: -dump -cols 76 -T text/html
I actually do not have mha-mhedit invoked all the time since
I do not need its facilities all the time. I have a shell
alias called 'mrepl' that is defined as follows:
repl -editor mha-mhedit
I use it if I ever need to reply to an HTML or multipart
I guess if the performance of mha-mhedit is not a problem for
you, then having it invoked by default for repl should not
be a problem.
You can run perldoc directly on mha-mhedit to view its manpage.
