Projects / pine2mutt


pine2mutt is a simple Perl script interesting to people who switch from using pine to mutt. It converts pine's .addressbook into mutt-readable aliases, enables pine-like sent-mail-folder handling and provides pine-like keybindings by sourcing the file "Pine.rc" which comes with mutt.

        I recommend the /other/ pine2mutt instead
        I tried this, and in it's attempt to do everything related to switching me over, it did too much. It also failed to import many of my pine addressbook entries. This page, which offers another "pine2mutt" perl script, was much more helpful for me:

        The Debian distribution of mutt includes a "Pine.rc" file, which provided a lot of the familiar Pine key bindings, among other things.

        This software didn't end being very useful in my transition.
