mmime
create MIME messages

mmime [
-c | -r
] [
-t content-type
] < message

mmime generates a ‘multipart/mixed’ message from the standard input, extending, wrapping, and encoding the header as necessary, and replacing lines in the message body of the form
#content/type[
#content-disposition
] path[
>filename
]
with a MIME part having Content-Type content/type, consisting of the contents of the file found at path. content-disposition is optional and defaults to ‘attachment’. filename is optional and defaults to the basename of path.
The options are as follows:
 
 
Check mode: don't output anything, exit with status 1 if MIME-encoding the message is required, or else exit with status 0.
 
 
Raw mode: don't expand MIME parts in the body, generate a ‘text/plain’ message.
 
 
content-type
Override Content-Type for the toplevel part. Defaults to ‘multipart/mixed’.

The mmime utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
