I noticed that someone was converting a Yahoo group to FUD, and it raises the question of whether or not there is a script to convert a standard listserv to the Forum? I'm hoping to be able to move a listserv's archieve to FUD.

I don't know about listserv, but FUDforum does have the ability to import messages from a e-mails as long as the complete body & header of the e-mail is available. If that is the case, then the only thing you'd need to do is write a short script to split the archive into individual messages and pipe them to maillist.php that can then import those messages into the forum.

Here's the question I was asked about the 'pipe' reference.

"if they mean a unix pipe, then I need to
know whether the script should, for each message, do this:

cat mesg#05 | maillist.php"

Is this what was meant?

Yes for each message you need to do

cat message | php maillist.php [import rule id]

"each" message? I have 19,000 messages in the archive. Is this sometbhing which can be automated or is the implied manual one by one I'm reading correct?
