mail2chart project generates various statistical charts from a bunch of mail messages. The code for generating a certain type of chart is plugged into the program.

This program depends heavily on MH for accessing mail messages and gnuplot for generating the charts.



Installation of these mini-projects is straight-forward: Just put them in a directory in your path and make them executable.

Some mini-projects have prerequisites which are listed in the manual page. Make sure to have the prerequisites installed.

Perl modules

Perl modules are of course installed with the usual sequence of

gunzip < dist >.tar.gz
tar xvf < dist >.tar
cd < dist >
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install


Refer to the file itself how to embed the code into your Emacs environment.


Some mini projects are plugins for MoinMoin and you must put them to the right directory in the plugin structure of your Wiki. For instance see installation instructions for parsers.

Other mini projects are regular scripts.

Please note that the current hoster of this site does not like .py files. Therefore they are extended by a .txt. Please strip the .txt before installation.

Perl >= V5.005

What's New in This Release:
