Compilation and installation of mboxgrep

mboxgrep should compile on a modern Unix-like operating system, such as GNU/Linux or FreeBSD.

Autoconf and Automake are used, and the most basic compilation procedure consists of:

make install # root rights probably needed here, prefix with sudo in such case

To see the list of flags accepted by the configure script, run:

./configure --help

Optionally, mboxgrep can be linked with the following libraries:

  • PCRE, to enable support for regular expressions compatible with Perl 5;
  • zlib and bzlib, to enable support for compressed mbox folders.
