Generates a .procmailrc file

cats2procmailrc is a filter to generate a .procmailrc file from a much terser file consisting of single-line rules. These suffice to do the most common mail filing, making maintenance of a procmailrc very easy for someone with more than a few filing rules. Each rule basically names the folder, an optional subject tag, and the pattern.


version 1.5 (stable)
released on 28 September 2002
