I have it working on Solaris (albeit an old 2.6) and Linux RH9. Hi. Seems like we've had a 1.1 release candidate sitting for a long time. Can we make it a release yet? It would be nice to have something newer than 1.0.4 going into things like Linux distributions. Hm, well ... how about

Where we're had to move away from nmh towards gnus is in MIME composition (e.g. for the ability to specify inline/attachment). You might want to look at the attachment stuff that I checked in a while back. I implemented it in such a way that it could easily be incorporated into MH-E. The

Well, here's a minor detail that could cause problems. I have a version of nmh here that has sbr/context_read modified to give a run install-mh message if mh isn't installed rather than doing it for the user as per yesterday's discussion. But, install-mh is not likely to be in the user's path;

Appropriateness of new program/feature

Howdy. I've been working on a companion mail reading system for nmh. In short, this is a system that builds a database from mail in folders, allowing it to be searched quickly. It includes a ranking mechanism, and allows messages to be searched by rank. Sort of like the current fad of Bayesian

But, there's one more sticky point. There's no good way to test whether or not nmh is installed. When I set up my program, I want to fail with an error message if the user hasn't set up a mail directory, etc. Is test -d `mhparam Path` sufficient for your needs? -- Eric Gillespie *

I've started working on the changes for the mh installation thing discussed earlier. My plan is to modify context_read() to print a message instead of invoking install-mh, and to add a -check option to install-mh that allows it to silently check for installation, returning the status via the exit
