mbox2news.pl
Archives news articles for later use with News::Archive

mbox2news.pl - Archives news articles for later use with News::Archive


NAME

mbox2news.pl - Archives news articles for later use with News::Archive


SYNOPSIS

mbox2news.pl [-hvVQd] [-c configfile] [-a groupname] < ARTICLE


DESCRIPTION

mbox2news.pl is a part of the News::Archive package, which is used to archive news articles in a reasonably efficient manner. This particular script is meant for use for personal archives, loading articles (or mbox-style archives) on STDIN and loading them into $KIBOZEDIR.

Without any options, mbox2news.pl will look for input from STDIN. Configuration information is stored in the configuration file (kibozerc). Command-line options are as follows:

-h
Print this usage information and exit.

-v
Print version information and exit.

-d
Debug; print debugging information (implies -V)

-c configfile
Load this configuration file instead of default (~/.kibozerc).

-a groupname
Add this group to all articles we download, so that they can be accessed uniformly.

-V
Verbose; print information on every article.

-Q
Quiet mode; only print that which is absolutely necessary (and even then think about it).


NOTES

This is essentially a counterpart to kiboze.pl; while that program goes to news servers and downloads new messages, mbox2news.pl uses existing messages. It is primarily meant to convert from old kiboze archives, or anything similar.

This script was meant to work with mbox-style archives; this is compatible with some single articles, however, so you can feed them in directly as well.

You may well need a helper script to make some programs give you mbox-compatible archives. This distribution comes with 'nnparse', which is used to fix the 'sentnews' items from the nn news reader; you can use it as an example if you wish.


REQUIREMENTS

News::Archive, News::Article::Mbox
