bwave2mbox.pl converts BlueWave packet files to e-mail in mbox format. BlueWave was a popular FidoNet mail reader. Its mail packets were ZIP archives that contained several data files. Here's a complete description of the BlueWave format: http://webtweakers.com/swag/MAIL/0023.PAS.html bwave2mbox.pl can process an arbitrary number of BlueWave packets and will write the results to any given directory, one mailbox per mail area. This program will not overwrite existing mailboxes, any new messages will simply be added after the previous ones. This program will not attempt to detect the character set used in the messages, it's assumed to be CP437 but you can change the default in the script. Some messages use the character 0x8d to indicate a line wrap. This is the so-called "soft carriage return" and will be replaced by a newline. However you might want to change this behavior since that character can also represent the "i" letter with a grave accent in CP437. See the source code for details. Usage example: $ bwave2mbox.pl ~/fidonet/bwave/down/bbs.* ~/fidonet/out Have fun, Alberto
