bbdb-srv - Converts Mail-Headers to an Emacs-Lisp String.


echo Some Headers | bbdb-srv


This script reads a block of message headers on stdin, and converts them to an emacs-lisp
string (quoting all dangerous characters) and then uses the `gnudoit' program to cause a
running Emacs process to invoke the `bbdb-srv' function with that string.

This has the effect of causing the running Emacs to display the BBDB record corresponding
to these headers.

See the Emacs side of things in bbdb-srv.el for more info.

A trivial application of this is the shell command:

echo 'From: Jamie Zawinski <jwz@netscape.com>' | bbdb-srv.perl

which will cause the corresponding record to be displayed. A more interesting application
of this is:

setenv NS_MSG_DISPLAY_HOOK bbdb-srv.perl

which will hook BBDB up to Mozilla (Unix Netscape Mail and Netscape News versions 3.0b2
and later only.)

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.
