[PATCH 0 of 2] subjectrx: altering the display subject
This first patch renames SPAM_LIST to REPLACE_LIST, and changes a couple
of variable names accordingly. The SPAM_LIST functionality is used by
the second patch, so it's renamed to something less misleading to reduce
The second patch adds subjectrx and unsubjectrx commands. subjectrx
defines a list of transformation regexes for the display subject (the
Subject: header, as shown in the index). You can use this to make
subjects more readable or more concise in the index view, without
changing the actual header value.
If a subjectrx transformation changes a message's display subject, the
transformed value is cached in a separate buffer (env->disp_subj) so
that the regex transformation is done only once per message per mutt
instance. Using subjectrx or unsubjectrx flushes all cached disp_subj
values. Transformations are applied when the index screen is generated,
so only those messages you see will be operated upon.
I've been using this code for about 7 months with no issues and much
less frustration at my mailing list and ticketing system mail. Wrote
the manual.xml text today.
