NAME

       rcvpack - append message to file

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/lib/mh/rcvpack file [-mbox] [-mmdf] [-version] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

       The  rcvpack  program  will  append  a  copy of the message to the file
       listed on its command line.

       If the -mbox switch is given  (the  default),  then  the  messages  are
       separated  using mbox (uucp) style delimiters.  This is the format used
       by most mail clients (elm, mailx, etc.).

       If the -mmdf switch is given, then the messages are separated  by  mmdf
       style  delimiters.   Each  message  in  the  file  is separated by four
       CTRL-A's and a newline.

       rcvpack will correctly lock and unlock the file to serialize access  to
       the file, when running multiple copies of rcvpack .

       In general, its use is obsoleted by the file action of slocal, although
       it might still have occasional uses in various shell scripts.
