git-mailsplit(1)
================
 
NAME
----
git-mailsplit - Simple UNIX mbox splitter program
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-mailsplit' [-b] [-f<nn>] [-d<prec>] -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.
 
<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.
