lr_spool - feed files in a spooldir to a command
lr_spool spooldir command
For each file f in directory spooldir, lr_spool generates a unique
LR_ID, exports it as a shell variable, and runs
command < f
. Before executing command, f is moved to $TMPDIR. If command exits
successfully, f is removed (command is assumed to save stdin to a file,
if it feels this is appropriate), else f is moved to LR_FAILEDDIR.
In case any of spooldir, TMPDIR or LR_FAILEDDIR doesn’t exist, it’s
created on the fly.
This script is invoked by lr_spoold(1), which uses lr_processmail(1) as
The directory spooldir is created using plain mkdir -p. If spooldir is
supposed to be part of a Maildir structure, only .../new/ is created.
This does not satisfy for a valid Maildir. One has to verify manually
wether spooldir is part of a valid Maildir, and create it manually, on
such a system.
