       lurker-search — searches for messages in a lurker database


       lurker-search [-c <config-file>]  [-k <keyword>]  [-d -f -i -v -q]  [<terms>*]


       lurker-search  searches a lurker database the same way as the web interface. It can output
       summary information and delete messages.


       -c config-file
                 Use this config file for lurker settings.

       -k keyword
                 Tag the matching messages with this keyword.

       -d        Delete the messages found by this search

       -f        Don't prompt before deleting

       -i        Command line paramers are not search terms, but message IDs.

       -v        Output message summary information

       -q        Don't output message ids or status


       Lurker-search accepts these keywords for searching:

       -xxx      select messages which do NOT match this term

       id:xxx    select a message by the Message-ID field

       rt:xxx    select messages which reply to the chosen Message-ID

       th:xxx    select messages included in this thread

       ml:xxx    select messages in this mailing list

       gr:xxx    select messages in this mailing list group

       au:xxx    select messages with this term in the author fields

       sb:xxx    select messages with this word in the subject

       lang:xxx  select messages in this language
