    Command:

    munpack

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           munpack [ -f ] [ -q ] [ -t ] [ -C directory ] [ filename ...  ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  munpack program reads each RFC-822 message filename and writes all
           non-text MIME parts or split-uuencoded files as files.  If no  filename
           argument is given, munpack reads from standard input.
    
           If  the message suggests a file name to use for the imbedded part, that
           name is cleaned of potential problem characters and used for the output
           file.   If the suggested filename includes subdirectories, they will be
           created as necessary.  If the message does not suggest a file name, the
           names "part1", "part2", etc are used in sequence.
    
           If the imbedded part was preceded with textual information, that infor-
           mation is also written to a file.  The file is named the  same  as  the
           imbedded part, with any filename extension replaced with ".desc".
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -f     Force  overwriting  of  existing files.  If a message suggests a
                  file name of an existing file, the  file  will  be  overwritten.
                  Without  this  flag,  munpack  appends ".1", ".2", etc to find a
                  nonexistent file.
    
           -q     Be quiet.  Suppresses messages about saving partial messages and
                  about messages with no interesting information.
    
           -t     Also  write  the text MIME parts of multipart messages as files.
                  By default, text parts that do not have a filename parameter  do
                  not  get unpacked.  This option effectively disables the ".desc"
                  file feature for MIME messages.
    
           -C directory
                  Change the current directory to  directory  before  reading  any
                  files.  This is useful when invoking munpack from a mail or news
                  reader.
    
    
    

    DECODING MIME

           To decode a MIME message, first save it to a text file.   If  possible,
           save  it with all headers included.  Munpack can decode some MIME files
           when the headers are missing  or  incomplete,  other  files  it  cannot
           decode without having the information in the headers.  In general, mes-
           sages which have a statement at the beginning that  they  are  in  MIME
           format  can  be  decoded without the headers.  Messages which have been
           split into multiple parts generally require all headers in order to  be
           reassembled and decoded.
    
           Some  LAN-based mail systems and some mail providers (including America
           Online, as of the writing of this document) place the mail  headers  at
           the  bottom  of  the message, instead of at the top of the message.  If
           you are having problems decoding a MIME message on such a  system,  you
           need  to convert the mail back into the standard format by removing the
           in each file.  For more information on ways to  run  munpack,  see  the
           section "OPTIONS" above.
