packf-unseen - pack MH unread messages into an mbox file

Packf-unseen packs copies of messages from a folder into a single file in the UNIX mbox format. Unlike the standard MH utility packf(1), this will track which messages have been copied in previous invocations, and will avoid re-copying them.

Packf-unseen uses MH sequences to mark and track seen messages.

It is intended that packf-unseen, as applied to syncing MH mail to a Palm handheld, be an interim measure; this support should be included in the pilot-link suite of tools.

The manual page is available.
