Pine Folder Information

I use Pine to read my eMail and procmail to sort incoming messages into multiple folders. I don't want to have to check every folder to see if it has new eMail in it or not. Pine really doesn't have any indication when you are in the folder view, if a folder has new messages. I also don't like the "jump to the next unread" feature, as I sometimes like to ignore folders.

This little utility will go through the files and/or directories you give it and report on which folders have new messages and how many of them there are. It also gives you stats on total messages in each folder. You can also sort the output in various ways and filter the output to include or exclude certain information.

Current version: mail_info 1.11 (Jan 15, 2000)

Any feedback is welcome.
