NAME

       rpload - pine remote data utility


SYNTAX

       rpload [ -f ] [ -s trimSize ] -t Type -l Local_file -r Remote_folder


DESCRIPTION

       Rpload may be used to convert local Pine configuration files or address
       books into remote configurations or address books.  It is  intended  to
       be  used  by  system administrators.  Regular users should normally use
       the facilities provided within Pine.

       Local_file will usually  be  a  user's  pine  configuration  file,  and
       Remote_folder  is  the IMAP folder which will be used (with the help of
       Pine's -p, -P, and -x commands or PINECONF, PINERC, and PINERCEX  envi-
       ronment  variables)  as the user's remote configuration folder.  A copy
       of Local_file will be placed in the  folder  with  the  correct  header
       lines to satisfy Pine.

       -f                  Force  the load even if the remote folder is in the
                           wrong format.  This will delete the contents of the
                           folder so use it carefully.

       -s trimSize         If  the  number of messages in the remote folder is
                           more than one plus trimsize (one is for the  header
                           message),  then  messages  2,  3, and so on will be
                           deleted until there are only one plus trimsize mes-
                           sages  left.  If this option is not set no trimming
                           will be done.

       -t Type             The possible Types  are  pinerc,  abook,  and  sig.
                           (Sig  is  mostly  obsolete. Literal signatures con-
                           tained within the  remote  pinerc  should  be  used
                           instead.)

       -l Local_file       The file on this system that is to be copied.

       -r Remote_folder    A remote folder name to be copied to.  See the Pine
                           documentation for the syntax  of  a  remote  folder
                           name.  One example is
                           {my.imap.server}remote_pinerc.


DIAGNOSTICS

       Exit status is zero if all goes well, -1 otherwise.
