scripts default iconGubby for Email System Utilities Publisher's description

Gubby is a small UNIX tool that keeps track of where and when procmail delivers your email.

Gubby is a small UNIX tool that keeps track of where and when procmail delivers your email.

Scans a procmail logfile and display a realtime-updated display of mailboxes and new email. Reads mailbox contents using a specified external mailreader (or MUA).

Output is normally displayed in a curses environment, but can also be printed conveniently to the standard output from the command prompt.

Gubby is a compact, efficient and powerful ``once-and-for-all'' rewrite of an old shell script.

If called without arguments, gubby searches for a procmail configuration file in $HOME/.procmailrc, scans it for a line beginning with LOGFILE=, and finally tries to parse the procmail logfile.

A complaint is filed to stderr if no files are found, and you'll have to supply the location of the file as a program argument.

Usage:- Print help and exit. - Print version info and exit. - Empty logfile and exit. - Specifies which program Gubby calls to read your mailboxes. - Specifies path to your local mailboxes. If this is set in your ~/.procmailrc file as MAILDIR=..., then this is the directory used. (This is only true when no logfile is specified as a program parameter) - Used with -m. Specifies program arguments to your mailreader when Gubby launches it to read a mailbox. These parameters should be the one telling your mailreader to ``read this mailbox: ...''. For instance, with Mutt, the argument is ``-f'', and the corresponding command Gubby will execute when a mailbox is selected for reading will be: mutt -f mailboxname - Used with -m. Specifies which arguments are needed for your mailprogram to start composing a new mail. - Print new mail and exit. - Used with -o. Prints folders in wide listing format, meaning that mailbox contents (i.e., From and Subject values) are printed as well. - Triggers the terminal bell (beep) on new mail. This may not be as annoying as it sounds. Some terminal emulators can be configured what to do on terminal bells. For instance, PuTTY (a terminal emulator) can make the window taskbar flash on bells. - Used with -b: Do not trigger bell when new mail is thrown in /dev/null. - Do not show /dev/null as a folder in the view at all. - Start Gubby in curses environment. (default) - Be verbose: Send warnings and notices to stderr (deprecated; all errors are written to stderr).
