       mpack - pack a file in MIME format

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

       The mpack program encodes the the named file in one or more  MIME  mes
       sages.	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  news

       -a     Set  the	Content-Disposition  to attachment.  If -a is not used
	      the Content-Disposition is inline.

       -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 introduc
	      tory 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  environ
	      ment  variable  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	deter
	      mine its type.

       -o outputfile
	      Write the generated message to the file outputfile.  If the mes
	      sage has to be split, the partial messages will instead be writ
	      ten to the files outputfile.01, outputfile.02, etc.

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

       file   Encode the named file.

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

       TMPDIR Directory to store temporary files.  Default is /var/tmp.

	      Default value of the -m switch.
