MSEQ(1) General Commands Manual MSEQ(1)

manipulate message sequences

mseq [-fr] [-c msg] msgs ...

mseq -S [-fr] < sequence

mseq -A [-fr] < sequence

mseq -C msg

mseq prints, fixes and sets the message sequence. (See mmsg(7) for the message argument syntax.)

If no msgs are passed and mseq is used interactively, mseq prints all messages in the sequence.

With -S or -A, mseq will replace (resp. append) the default sequence. If the standard output is not a terminal, the new sequence is also printed.

The options are as follows:

Behave as if msg was the current message.
Fix non-existing filenames by searching for a message with the same maildir id (but different flags).
Remove leading indentation from the filenames.
Set the message sequence to the filenames passed on standard input.
Like -S, but append to the message sequence instead of replacing it.
Set the current message to msg and exit.

Directory containing mblaze configuration. (Default: $HOME/.mblaze)
Symbolic link referring to the current message. (Default: ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/cur)
When set to a filename, overrides the current message. (Prefer using -c instead.)
File were the sequence is stored. (Default: ${MBLAZE:-$HOME/.mblaze}/seq)

The mseq utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
