COUNTMAIL(6)

Contents


NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     countmail - be obnoxious about how much mail you have

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     countmail

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The countmail program counts your mail and tells you about it rather
     obnoxiously.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The countmail first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.  countmail was first written
     by Noah Friedman <friedman@splode.com> in 1993.  This version was written
     by Charles M. Hannum <mycroft@netbsd.org>.

CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The read loop is horrendously slow on every shell implementation tried.
     countmail uses from(1) and wc(1) instead, though these are not shell
     builtins.
