Hello!

                                mimedecode.py

WHAT IS IT

   Mail users, especially in non-English countries, often find that mail
messages arrived in different formats, with different content types, in
different encodings and charsets. Usually this is very good because it allows
us to use apropriate formats/encodings/whatever. Sometimes, though, some
unification is desireable. For example, one may want to put mail messages into
an archive, make HTML indicies, run search indexer, etc. In such situations
converting messages to text in one character set and skipping some binary
atachmetnts will be much desireable.

   Here is the solution - mimedecode.py.

   This is a program to decode MIME messages. The program expects one input
file (either on command line or on stdin) which treated as an RFC822 mesage,
and decoded to stdout. If the file is not an RFC822 message the file just
piped to stdout one-to-one. If it is a simple RFC822 message it is just
decoded as one part. If it is a MIME message with multiple parts
("attachments") all parts decoded. Decoding can be controlled by command-line
options.
