I'm having some trouble getting archive2.pl to work correctly, and I cannot
figure out what I'm doing wrong.
What I really want is to parse through the digests in
/usr/local/mail/lists/listname.archive (stored in the format v1999.n001)
and create the by-month archives in /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/lists that
I can then use with Wilma/MHonArc. Destination directory exists and is
I've tried all sorts of things, but from what I can tell this should
(should being the keyword) work:
archive2.pl -f /usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs/lists/listname -M -u
>From what I understand the internal documentation:
-M = grouping criteria and filename extension setting:
group by month, extension of YYYYMM
-f listname = tells archive2.pl to create the archives
with the name "listname.YYYYMM", I assume adding
a path won't affect it since it is just appending YYYYMM
to the end of the parameter data specified by -f, which should
-u = pull data from MajorDomo digests
The documentation is unclear about this. Do I specify a
specific digest to parse, or just the digest directory and it
will automatically process all digests? I've attempted to
specify both and neither are working for me.
Can anyone shed ANY light on how to process the digests into archives so
that Wilma can understand them? Are there alternate programs that I should
be using instead?
Thank you very much for any and all help.
