mboxgrep 0.7.9

mboxgrep is a small utility that scans a mailbox for messages matching a regular expression.
mboxgrep is a small utility that scans a mailbox for messages matching a regular expression. Found messages can be either displayed on standard output, counted, deleted, piped to a shell command or written to another mailbox.

Here are some key features of "mboxgrep":

support for mbox (either plain or compressed), MH, nnmh, nnml and maildir folders
ability of reading mbox folders and out from another mboxgrep process from standard input
support for basic and extended POSIX regular expressions, and optionally, Perl-complatible regular expressions (if linked with the PCRE library)
ability of limiting the search to message body or headers (although the whole message is scanned by default)
message counting
recursive search through directories
ability to invert the sense of matching
ability to write found messages to another mailbox
filtering duplicate messages

What's New in This Release:

implemented support for mbox folders compressed with bzip2 algorithm
improved detection of PCRE library; this also fixes a compilation bug on recent RedHat Linux systems
fixed a problem with message deletion, which used to occur if an mbox folder and temporary directory were on different filesystems
