LEI-LCAT(1)                public-inbox user manual                LEI-LCAT(1)

NAME
       lei-lcat - display local copy of messages(s)

SYNOPSIS
       lei lcat [OPTIONS] MSGID_OR_URL [MSGID_OR_URL...]

       lei lcat [OPTIONS] (--stdin|-)

DESCRIPTION
       lcat (local cat) is a wrapper around lei-q(1) that displays local
       messages by Message-ID.  It is able to extract Message-IDs from URLs as
       well as from common formats such as "<$MSGID>" and "id:$MSGID".  When
       reading from stdin, input that isn't understood is discarded, so the
       caller doesn't have to bother extracting the Message-ID or link from
       surrounding text (e.g., a "Link: $URL" line).

OPTIONS
       The following options, described in lei-q(1), are supported.  One
       deviation from lei-q(1) is the default output format is "-f text" when
       writing to stdout.

       --format=FORMAT
       -f FORMAT
           Most commonly "text" (the default) or "reply" to display the
           message(s) in a format suitable for trimming and sending as a email
           reply.

       --stdin
       -   "lei lcat" implicitly reads from stdin if it is a pipe(7) or
           regular file.  This is handy for invoking "lei lcat" from inside an
           $EDITOR session (assuming you use an $EDITOR which lets you pipe
           arbitrary lines to arbitrary commands).

       --[no-]remote
       --no-local
       --no-external
       --no-import-remote
       --torsocks=auto|no|yes, --no-torsocks
       --proxy=PROTO://HOST[:PORT]
