Description : improved decoder for application/ms-tnef attachments
Yerase's TNEF Stream Reader allows you to decode application/ms-tnef
e-mail attachments, which are usually entitled "winmail.dat" and are
generally a file container format that is only readable by Microsoft
Outlook. Some TNEF streams also include RTF-formatted data.
libytnef0 is the support library that exposes these functions to other
programs. The ytnef program (and eponymous package) is the frontend for
this library, so you should probably install that if you want to take
advantage of it.
and for the -dev package:
These are the development headers for libytnef0.
This kind of supersedes the tnef package in quality, IMO, so I'll be
talking to the maintainer Nick Phillips about collaborating on this,
though I already have packages ready.
