Subject: [PATCH 13/14] convert: check ARGV more correctly
Date: Mon, 10 Aug 2020 02:12:04 +0000
Message-ID: <20200810021205.18909-14-e@yhbt.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200810021205.18909-1-e@yhbt.net>

Instead of silently ignoring excessive args, don't let a user
specify an extra directory.  Furthermore, we'll support the odd
case where BOFH wants to name an $INBOX_DIR to be `0' :P
