NAME
       b2m - convert old Emacs Rmail Babyl format to mbox format

SYNOPSIS
       b2m < babyl-file > mbox-file

DESCRIPTION
       b2m accepts Babyl format mail (as used by older versions of Rmail in GNU Emacs) on standard input, and converts
       it to mbox format on standard output.  Babyl was the storage format used by Rmail prior to Emacs  23.1.   Since
       then, it uses standard mbox format.  This program is distributed with GNU Emacs.

       The program accepts unambiguous abbreviations for long option names.

SEE ALSO
       The  Babyl format is described in the file etc/BABYL in the Emacs distribution.  Rmail is documented in the GNU
       Emacs manual, which  you  can  read  using Info, either from Emacs or as a standalone program.
