ezmlm-idx - create index for mailing list archive
ezmlm-idx [ -dD ] dir
ezmlm-idx reads all archived messages for the list in dir
from dir/archive/ and creates a message index. The index
file format is identical to that produced by ezmlm-send(1)
(when dir/indexed is present).
ezmlm-idx will ignore messages that do not have the owner
execute bit set.
ezmlm-idx will create the the index file under a different
name and then move it into place.
If dir/indexed does not exist, ezmlm-idx will create it to
enable the use of the newly created subject and author
ezmlm-idx will remove reply-indicators and the prefix from
the subject before entry into the index, as described for
ezmlm-send(1). ezmlm-idx will decode rfc2047 encoded sub-
ject and author headers. When unfolding split lines,
ezmlm-idx will remove redundant escape sequences for the
character set specified in dir/charset.
ezmlm-idx calculates a subject hash based on the normal-
ized subject header. Normalization removes linear whites-
pace, case information, and message reply indicators. The
subject hash is used by ezmlm-get(1) for message thread-
-d Use the ``Date:'' header for date information,
rather than the top ``Received:'' header. This is
unreliable, but useful when messages have been
transferred from another type of archive by mailing
them to ezmlm. ezmlm-idx converts dates with two-
digit years ``xx'' to 19xx if xx is >= 70. Other-
wise, 20xx is assumed.
-D (Default.) Do not use the ``Date:'' header.
