.Nm casual update
.Nd software developments
.
.Sh DESCRIPTION
I've been figuring out more of IMAP
and Internet Messages in general
while working on a new project
so I've revisited some older ones.
I've copied my somewhat more proper
IMAP parsing code into them,
so they should be more robust.
.
.Pp
.Xr imbox 1
is my tool to export messages
in mboxrd format directly from IMAP.
It's mostly for applying patches sent by email
without having any kind of local mail setup.
For that,
it includes the
.Xr git-fetch-email 1
wrapper which works very similarly to
.Xr git-send-email 1 .
I learned by reading the source of
.Xr git-subtree 1
that
.Xr git-rev-parse 1
can be used by shell scripts
to parse long options,
so I added those.
I also added the
.Fl Fl apply
flag to automatically pipe to
.Xr git-am 1
with the right flags for mboxrd.
.
.Pp
.Xr notemap 1
is a tool for mirroring text files
to an IMAP Notes mailbox,
which is used by FastMail's web UI
and the macOS/iOS Notes app.
Its original parsing code
was particularly ad-hoc.
Since I've now learned
how UTF-8 headers are encoded,
I updated it to properly encode
the file name in the Subject line.
.
.Pp
I also got distracted by
a conversation about UNIX-domain sockets
where I was comparing the macOS and FreeBSD
.Xr unix 4
pages and the Linux
.Xr unix 7
page.
This lead me to make
.Xr exman 1 ,
a tool to locally install and read
manual pages for Linux, POSIX,
.Fx ,
.Nx
and
.Ox .
I've already gotten quite a bit of use out of it.
.
.Pp
In yet another IRC distraction,
I was talking about some further plans for my IRC software,
and realized it might be time to write
my future projects list down.
I opened a
.Pa .plan
file,
immediately wondered how anyone can write plain text,
then switched to a
.Pa plan.7
file.
There's nothing I won't use
.Xr mdoc 7
for.
After a little setup,
I can now be fingered,
and make jokes about this silly little protocol
from the days of old.
.Xr finger 1 Ap s
default output fills me with joy:
.Bd -unfilled -offset indent
No Mail.
No Plan.
.Ed
.
.Pp
And speaking of IRC and plans,
I've been meaning to tag
.Xr catgirl 1
version 1.0 for a while now.
I've been using it as my main client
and my commits to it have really slowed down.
When I do tag it,
I'm planning on writing another post
about my whole
.Dq suite
of IRC software
and how the parts work together.
Watch this space.
