Description

Sometime is needed view files in mbox format. It would be convenient to have a decoder for Base64/QP.

This would require mbox/MIME parsing, otherwise how are you going to recognize plain text from parts to be decoded?

echo akdhakd | base64 -d
jGajGbase64: invalid input

And what are you going to do later with e.g. binary attachments, parse via aalib?;)

I'd strongly suggest using mutt for such task, mcview isn't appropriate tool for this.

Replying to gotar:

This would require mbox/MIME parsing

mbox is only one case. It can be vcf (Android's backup of contacts, for example).

otherwise how are you going to recognize plain text from parts to be decoded?

It is not necessary. It is needed for text only, so the user can decide on their own.
