NAME

git-mailsplit - Simple UNIX mbox splitter program  

SYNOPSIS

git mailsplit [-b] [-f<nn>] [-d<prec>] [--keep-cr] -o<directory> [--] [(<mbox>|<Maildir>)...]

 

DESCRIPTION

Splits a mbox file or a Maildir into a list of files: "0001" "0002" .. in the specified directory so you can process them further from there.


Important

Maildir splitting relies upon filenames being sorted to output patches in the correct order.

 

OPTIONS

<mbox>

Mbox file to split. If not given, the mbox is read from the standard input.

<Maildir>

Root of the Maildir to split. This directory should contain the cur, tmp and new subdirectories.

-o<directory>

Directory in which to place the individual messages.

-b

If any file doesn't begin with a From line, assume it is a single mail message instead of signaling error.

-d<prec>

Instead of the default 4 digits with leading zeros, different precision can be specified for the generated filenames.

-f<nn>

Skip the first <nn> numbers, for example if -f3 is specified, start the numbering with 0004.

--keep-cr

Do not remove \r from lines ending with \r\n.
