       git-mailsplit - Simple UNIX mbox splitter program


       git mailsplit [-b] [-f<nn>] [-d<prec>] [--keep-cr] [--mboxrd]
                       -o<directory> [--] [(<mbox>|<Maildir>)...]


       Splits a mbox file or a Maildir into a list of files: "0001" "0002" ..
       in the specified directory so you can process them further from there.


           Maildir splitting relies upon filenames being sorted to output
           patches in the correct order.


           Mbox file to split. If not given, the mbox is read from the
           standard input.

           Root of the Maildir to split. This directory should contain the
           cur, tmp and new subdirectories.

           Directory in which to place the individual messages.

           If any file doesn't begin with a From line, assume it is a single
           mail message instead of signaling an error.

           Instead of the default 4 digits with leading zeros, different
           precision can be specified for the generated filenames.

           Skip the first <nn> numbers, for example if -f3 is specified, start
           the numbering with 0004.

           Do not remove \r from lines ending with \r\n.

           Input is of the "mboxrd" format and "^>+From " line escaping is
