although this is about a hack of a perl script that does not offer full hypermail functionality, I thought, it might be of interest to you. When I talk below about the 'original C version' I mean 1.02. Actually, I did find your site only after my hack... The main reason for doing the hack was the support of META tags, and the fact that C 1.02 did not provide proper HTML syntax. The latter seems to be much better in C 2.03b. Does this version also support META tags? Maybe, the perl versions deserve also a link from your 'The Others' page?

Best regards

Hi, Dylan,

I just implemented a hacked version of your hypermail.pl . It is available at http://www.chemie.uni-regensburg.de/pub/hypermail.pl . I called the hack version 'H4 1.00'. I added some of the functionality of the original hypermail, including generation of proper hyperlinks from email addresses, and also from http, ftp, and gopher URLs in the mail, and additionally, support for some META tags. A link to this version from
  http://web.nwe.ufl.edu/~northrup/hypermail.html would be appreciated.

An archive created with it is

I use the following perl version:

        This is perl, version 5.003 with EMBED
        built under solaris at Jul 11 1996 18:45:55
        + suidperl security patch

and sofar, I did not encounter problems with the hacked version.

Thanks for providing the original perl version that is easier to adapt (at least for me) than the original C version. Also, the output of the C version did not conform to HTML syntax, and thus, I did not like it too much.

Best regards
