MATCHERRC2PERLFILTER(1) Claws Mail MATCHERRC2PERLFILTER(1)

NAME

matcherrc2perlfilter - convert matcherrc rules to Perl

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the matcherrc2perlfilter.

This manual page was written for the Debian™ distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

This script converts matcherrc filtering rules (default rules format) into perl_filter rules for usage with the claws-mail-perl-filter plugin of the Claws Mail mailer.

USAGE

matcherrc2perlfilter

No arguments required. Conversion is done for current user only.

FILES

~/.claws-mail/matcherrc
Input file where standard filtering rules lie.
~/.claws-mail/perl_filter
Output file written by this script. Converted rules are appended if the file already exists, so be careful when running the script more than once.

CAVEATS

This conversion script doesn't produce nice Perl code and is just intended to get you started. If you choose to use the Perl plugin, consider rewriting your rules.

SEE ALSO

claws-mail(1), claws-mail-perl-filter(7).
