       b2m - convert old Emacs Rmail Babyl format to mbox format

       b2m < babyl-file > mbox-file

       b2m  accepts  Babyl  format mail (as used by older versions of Rmail in
       GNU Emacs) on standard input, and converts it to mbox format  on  stan-
       dard output.  Babyl was the storage format used by Rmail prior to Emacs
       23.1.  Since then, it uses standard mbox format.  This program is  dis-
       tributed with GNU Emacs.

       The program accepts unambiguous abbreviations for long option names.

       -V, --version
              Display version information.

       -h, --help
              Display basic usage information.

       The  Babyl  format is described in the file etc/BABYL in the Emacs dis-
       tribution.  Rmail is documented in the GNU  Emacs  manual,  which   you
       can  read  using Info, either from Emacs or as a standalone program.

       b2m  was originally written by Ed Wilkinson.  Francesco Potorti updated
       it according to the GNU coding standards.
