[Mailman-Users] Recovering EMail Addresses from Majordomo's subscribers.D File

Recently I completely upgraded my Linux server starting with a freshly formatted root partition after backing up all the system directories to another partition.  I then installed the latest versions of my application software drawing on the old configuration files I had tucked away where appropriate.  All went fine until majordomo.  There were so many problems with that not working with the newer version of Perl etc. that I gave up and installed Mailman.  That went smoothly but I am now at a point where I would like to import the email addresses from two majordomo lists and I have hit another roadblock.    Mailman wants one email address per line to import and majordomo’s _subscribers.D file for each list is not formatted that way.    

Is there some means to import the email addresses directly from majordomo’s subscribers.D file or alternatively, a way of parsing the _subscribers.D file to a file that bin/add_members can use?   Exporting from majordomo is not an option at this point.

I do not care if the subscriber’s real name doesn’t come with the email address and I do not care about importing past postings.   All I really need are the subscriber’s email addresses.
