This program provides "TOFU-Protection" to improve the readability of
email and newsposts. TOFU is a German acronym for "Text oben, Fullquote
unten", meaning the regrettably widespread reply style that leaves all
the quotes untrimmed and just adds some text at the top. This script
filters annoying mailing list footers, long signatures, and TOFU, as
well as squeezing sequences of blank lines, exclamation marks, etc.
It currently offers example configurations for applying t-prot within
heirloom-mailx, INN 2, mailcap, Mutt, or slrn. It should be possible to
do likewise with other programs that allow a message to be passed
through a filter before being displayed. If you use such a program we'd
be interested if you could send in your setup.
