       ezmlm-idx - create index	for mailing list archive

       ezmlm-idx [ -dDF	][ -fI msg ] dir

       ezmlm-idx  reads	all archived messages for the list in dir from dir/ar-
       chive/ and creates a message index. The index file format is  identical
       to that produced	by ezmlm-send(1) (when dir/indexed is present).

       ezmlm-idx  will	ignore messages	that do	not have the owner execute bit

       ezmlm-idx will create the the index file	under  a  different  name  and
       then move it into place.

       If  dir/indexed	does not exist,	ezmlm-idx will create it to enable the
       use of the newly	created	subject	and author index.

       ezmlm-idx will remove reply-indicators and the prefix from the  subject
       before entry into the index, as described for ezmlm-send(1).  ezmlm-idx
       will decode rfc2047 encoded subject and author headers. When  unfolding
       split  lines,  ezmlm-idx	will remove redundant escape sequences for the
       character set specified in dir/charset.

       ezmlm-idx calculates a subject hash based  on  the  normalized  subject
       header.	Normalization removes linear whitespace, case information, and
       message reply indicators.  The subject hash is used by ezmlm-get(1) for
       message threading.

       -d     Use  the	``Date:'' header for date information, rather than the
	      top ``Received:''	header.	This is	unreliable,  but  useful  when
	      messages	have  been transferred from another type of archive by
	      mailing them to ezmlm.  ezmlm-idx	converts dates with  two-digit
	      years ``xx'' to 19xx if xx is >= 70. Otherwise, 20xx is assumed.

       -D     (Default.)   Use	the  ``Received:''  header,  not the ``Date:''
	      header. This is more reliable since this is the header added  by
	      the receiving qmail. Also, this results in always	correctly for-
	      matted dates in the same time zone (usually UTC).

       -f msg Start indexing with the archive section containing message  msg.
	      This  is	useful	if you have removed part of the	archive	and do
	      not want to create  (empty)  directories	and  index  files  for
	      these. It	also decreases ezmlm-idx memory	use.

       -F     (Default.)  Start	indexing from message 1.

       -v     Display ezmlm-idx	version	info.

       -V     Display ezmlm-idx	version	info.
