ANNO(1)                                                                ANNO(1)




NAME

       anno - annotate messages


SYNOPSIS

       anno [+folder] [msgs] [-component field] [-inplace]
            [-noinplace] [-date] [-nodate] [-text body]
            [-version] [-help]


DESCRIPTION

       Anno  annotates  the  specified  messages in the named folder using the
       field and body.

       Usually, annotation is performed by the commands dist, forw, and  repl,
       if they are given the `-anno' switch.  This allows you to keep track of
       your distribution of, forwarding of, and replies to a message.

       By using anno, you can perform arbitrary annotations of your own.  Each
       message selected will be annotated with the lines

           field: date
           field: body

       The  `-nodate'  switch  inhibits  the date annotation, leaving only the
       body annotation.

       If a `-component field' is not specified when  anno  is  invoked,  anno
       will prompt the user for the name of field for the annotation.

       The  field  specified  should  be a valid 822-style message field name,
       which means that it should consist of alphanumerics (or  dashes)  only.
       The body specified is arbitrary text.

       Normally  anno  does  the  annotation  inplace in order to preserve any
       links to the message.  You may change this by  using  the  `-noinplace'
       switch.
