NAME
       mpack - pack a file in MIME format

SYNOPSIS
       mpack [ -s subject ] [ -d descriptionfile ] [ -m maxsize ] [ -c content-type ] file address ...
       mpack [ -s subject ] [ -d descriptionfile ] [ -m maxsize ] [ -c content-type ] -o outputfile file
       mpack [ -s subject ] [ -d descriptionfile ] [ -m maxsize ] [ -c content-type ] -n newsgroups file

DESCRIPTION
       The  mpack  program encodes the the named file in one or more MIME messages.  The resulting messages are mailed
       to one or more recipients, written to a named file or set of files, or posted to a set of newsgroups.


OPTIONS
       -s subject
              Set the Subject header field to Subject.  By default, mpack will prompt for the contents of the  subject
              header.

       -d descriptionfile
              Include  the  contents  of  the  file descriptionfile in an introductory section at the beginning of the
              first generated message.

       -m maxsize
              Split the message (if necessary) into partial messages, each  not  exceeding  maxsize  characters.   The
              default  limit  is the value of the SPLITSIZE environment variable, or no limit if the environment vari-
              able does not exist.  Specifying a maxsize of 0 means there is no limit to the  size  of  the  generated
              message.

       -c content-type
              Label  the  included  file  as  being of MIME type content-type, which must be a subtype of application,
              audio, image, or video.  If this switch is not given, mpack examines the file to determine its type.

       -o outputfile
              Write the generated message to the file outputfile.  If the message has to be split,  the  partial  mes-
              sages will instead be written to the files outputfile.01, outputfile.02, etc.

       -n newsgroups
              Post the generated message(s) to the comma-separated netnews newsgroups.

       file   Encode the named file.

       address ...
              Mail the generated messages to the specified addresses.

ENVIRONMENT
       TMPDIR Directory to store temporary files.  Default is /usr/tmp.

       SPLITSIZE
              Default value of the -m switch.
