( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

As Limbic~Region pointed out, Mail::Box is perfect for this sort of thing. Here is an example (assuming mbox format):

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use Mail::Box::Manager; my ($folder1,$folder2,$folder3) = @ARGV; my $mgr = Mail::Box::Manager->new( folderdir => [ '.' ] ); my $f1 = $mgr->open(folder => $folder1, ) or die $!; my $f2 = $mgr->open(folder => $folder2, ) or die $1; my $f3 = $mgr->open(folder => $folder3, create => 1, access => 'rw', ) + or die $!; foreach my $msg ( $f1->messages(),$f2->messages() ){ $msg->copyTo($f3) if $msg; } # or $mgr->copyMessage($f3, ($f1->messages(),$f2->messages()) ); $mgr->closeAllFolders(); 1;

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
