Bug#290991: ITP: libmail-mboxparser-perl -- Perl5 module for fast, object-oriented UNIX mailbox reading

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libmail-mboxparser-perl
  Version         : 0.51
  Upstream Author : Tassilo von Parseval <tassilo.parseval@post.rwth-aachen.de>
* URL             : http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/~vparseval/Mail-MboxParser
* License         : Dual (Artistic / GPL)
  Description     : Perl5 module for fast, object-oriented UNIX mailbox reading

 This Perl module attempts to provide a simplified access to standard
 UNIX-mailboxes (mboxes.) It offers only a subset of methods to get 'straight
 to the point'. More sophisticated things can still be done by invoking any
 method from MIME::Tools on the appropriate return values.
 Mail::MboxParser has not been derived from Mail::Box and thus isn't acquainted
 with it in any way. It, however, incorporates some invaluable hints by the
 author of Mail::Box, Mark Overmeer.

This ITP is in preparation for another ITP, for the 'bugger' BTS
navigation program written in Perl with libgtk2-perl. Stay tuned for

Initial packages are already available at


This is my first Perl module, so I'm definitely looking for feedback.
