mc's ability to view many different file formats, automagically, by
<F3> is really nice. And especially the way it's not hardwired in,
but can just be added/extended as new formats evolve.
I'm on some mailing-lists which previously used plain-text, as is
appropriate since they don't benefit from MIME, but were apparently
convinced by the marketers that they 'must have the latest'.
For good reasons I want to receive and read these posts with my old
reader which doesn't handle MIME and show the eg. "=20" crap.
Q1. has linux got a basic 'de-MIMER' ? Perhaps lynx can do it, the
way lynx nicely handles mc/<F3> for *.html ?
Q2. how would I add it to the existin <F3> repetoir ?
Could I give the 'files needing to be dispalyed as de-MIMED
with their own file.extention ?
Or else one could simply:
<deMime> <FileID> ">" <newFileID>
and then use standard <F3> to view <newFileID>
BTW. re my previous query, for the mc version that I'm using,
under X: <Alt>/<enter> puts the selected FileId to the commond
line, as <Ctrl>/<enter> does under VT. And it's in the docos.

PS. what I hate more than MIME email, is html, but mc handles
that too !
