GIT-MAILSPLIT(1) Git Manual GIT-MAILSPLIT(1)

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 doesnt 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 0 from lines ending with Do not remove
