     mmime — create MIME messages


     mmime [-c | -r] [-t content-type] < message


     mmime generates a ‘multipart/mixed’ message from the standard input, extending, wrapping,
     and encoding the header as necessary, and replacing lines in the message body of the form

           #content/type[#content-disposition] path[>filename]

     with a MIME part having Content-Type content/type, consisting of the contents of the file
     found at path.  content-disposition is optional and defaults to ‘attachment’.  filename is
     optional and defaults to the basename of path.

     The options are as follows:

     -c      Check mode: don't output anything, exit with status 1 if MIME-encoding the message
             is required, or else exit with status 0.

     -r      Raw mode: don't expand MIME parts in the body, generate a ‘text/plain’ message.

     -t content-type
             Override Content-Type for the toplevel part.  Defaults to ‘multipart/mixed’.


     The mmime utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
