NAME
       git-mailsplit - Simple UNIX mbox splitter program

SYNOPSIS
       git mailsplit [-b] [-f<nn>] [-d<prec>] [--keep-cr] [--mboxrd]
		       -o<directory> [--] [(<mbox>|<Maildir>)...]


DESCRIPTION
       Splits a mbox file or a Maildir into a list of files: "0001" "0002" ..
       in the specified directory so you can process them further from there.

	   Important
	   Maildir splitting relies upon filenames being sorted to output
	   patches in the correct order.

OPTIONS
       <mbox>
	   Mbox file to split. If not given, the mbox is read from the
	   standard input.

       <Maildir>
	   Root of the Maildir to split. This directory should contain the
	   cur, tmp and new subdirectories.

       -o<directory>
	   Directory in which to place the individual messages.

       -b
	   If any file doesn't begin with a From line, assume it is a single
	   mail message instead of signaling error.

       -d<prec>
	   Instead of the default 4 digits with leading zeros, different
	   precision can be specified for the generated filenames.

       -f<nn>
	   Skip the first <nn> numbers, for example if -f3 is specified, start
	   the numbering with 0004.

       --keep-cr
	   Do not remove \r from lines ending with \r\n.

       --mboxrd
	   Input is of the "mboxrd" format and "^>+From " line escaping is
	   reversed.
