NAME
       setmaillist - create a binary mailing list

SYNOPSIS
       setmaillist bin tmp

DESCRIPTION
       setmaillist reads a mailing list	from its standard input.

       setmaillist  writes the mailing list in a binary	format to tmp; it then
       moves tmp to bin.  tmp and bin must be on the same filesystem.

       If there	is a problem creating tmp, setmaillist	complains  and	leaves
       bin alone.

       The binary mailing list format is portable across machines.

       setmaillist always creates bin world-readable.

MAILING	LIST FORMAT
       The  mailing  list read by setmaillist is a series of lines.  NUL bytes
       are not allowed.

       If a line begins	with a dot or slash, setmaillist takes the entire line
       as an include file name.

       If  a  line begins with an ampersand, setmaillist takes the rest	of the
       line as a recipient address.  If	a line begins with a letter or number,
       setmaillist takes the entire line as a recipient	address.  Each recipi-
       ent address must	include	a fully	qualified domain name.	Recipient  ad-
       dresses longer than 800 bytes are not allowed.

       setmaillist  ignores  blank  lines and lines beginning with #.  It also
       ignores spaces and tabs at the ends of lines.

       For example,

	  god@heaven.af.mil
	  djb@silverton.berkeley.edu

       is a mailing list with two addresses.
