./mail/exmh, X11/TK based mail reader front end to MH

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.7.2nb5, Package name: exmh-2.7.2nb5, Maintainer: dsainty

exmh is a TCL/TK based interface to the MH mail system.

IMPORTANT: exmh depends on the TK send facility for its background
processing. With TK 3.3, send now uses xauthority mechanisms by default,
unless you compile TK with -DTK_NO_SECURITY. Generally, this means that
you **MUST** must run xdm to start your Xserver.

FEATURES: As well as providing the usual layer on top of MH commands, exmh
has a number of other features:

MIME support! Displays richtext and enriched directly.
Color feedback in the scan listing.
A colour coded folder display with one label per folder.
Smart scan caching. News read/post. koi8-r support.
Facesaver bitmap display. Ispell support.
Background inc. You can set exmh to run inc periodically.
Searching over folder listing and message body.
A dialog-box interface to MH pick.
A editor editor with emacs-like bindings with MIME support.
Glimpse interface. You can index all your mail with glimpse
and search for messages by content.
User preferences. You can tune exmh through a dialog box.
User hacking support. A user library of TCL routines is supported.

Bump freetype2 and fontconfig dependencies to current pkgsrc versions,

Log message:
From Robert Elz:
Patch from upstream cvs repository to allow exmh to function
correctly with tcl 8.5 (or any earlier version).  This patch
will not be needed after the next exmh upgrade.

No PKGREVISION bump since no uservisible changes.
