( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi again, Thanks for the answer but I cannot seem to get your part with the mbox to work.
I'm using the .procmailrc with the following statement:

:0 | /tmp/mailparser.pl> /tmp/test.log

So I'm parsing the mail directly to the script which should read it through STDIN.
I changed the print (to,from,subject,body) to print to a file instead because that is what I need, but the file is empty. The script now looks like this:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use Mail::MboxParser; my $mbox= \*STDIN; my $mb = Mail::MboxParser->new($mbox); open (MSG,">mailmessage"); for my $msg ($mb->get_messages) { my $to = $msg->header->{to}; my $from = $msg->header->{from}; my $cc = $msg->header->{cc} || " ", my $subject = $msg->header->{subject} || '<No Subject:>', my $body = $msg->body($msg->find_body,0); my $body_str = $body->as_string || '<No message text>'; print MSG "To: $to\n", "From: $from\n", "Cc: $cc\n", "Subject: $subject\n", "Message Text: $body_str\n"; print MSG "~" x 77, "\n\n"; close MSG; }

The file is created so it's not a permission problem but it is empty. The MboxParser.pm is just installed.
Any ideas?
Thanks, Rune

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).
