NAME
       ap - nmh	parser of RFC 822-style	addresses

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/libexec/nmh/ap [-help] [-version] [-form formatfile] [-for-
	    mat	string]	[-width	columns] addrs ...

DESCRIPTION
       ap is a program that parses addresses according to  the	ARPA  Internet
       standard.  It also understands many non-standard	formats.  It is	useful
       for seeing how nmh will interpret an address.

       The ap program treats each argument  as	one  or	 more  addresses,  and
       prints  those  addresses	out in the official RFC	822 format.  Hence, it
       is usually best to enclose each argument	in quotes for the shell.

       To override the output format used by ap, the -format string or -format
       file  switches are used.	 This permits individual fields	of the address
       to be extracted with ease.  The string is simply	a format  string,  and
       the file	is simply a format file.  See mh-format(5) for the details.

       In  addition  to	the standard escapes, ap also recognizes the following
       additional escape:

	    Escape  Returns  Description
	    error   string   A diagnostic if the parse failed

       Here is the default format string used by ap:

	    %<{error}%{error}: %{text}%|%(putstr(proper{text}))%>

       which says that if an error was detected, print the error, a  `:',  and
       the  address  in	error.	Otherwise, output the RFC 822-proper format of
       the address.
