matcherrc2perlfilter(1) Conversion of matcherrc rules to Perl


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 into perl_filter rules for usage with the claws-mail-perl-filter plugin of the Claws Mail mailer.



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



Input file where standard filtering rules lie.


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.


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.
